NDO//VNA - 'Spraying Board Vietnam', the first ever exhibition on skateboard art in the country, has opened in Ho Chi Minh City.

Organised by the French Institute in Ho Chi Minh City and Superposition, an association for the promotion of urban cultures in Lyon, France, it aims to bring the skateboard culture and urban art to local connoisseurs.

It has featured 40 works created by six French street artists Bouda, Bambi Bakbi, Don Mateo, Le Monstr, Babs, and Dodo Ose.

It has also showcased works of four Vietnamese artists, Amm Banhmi, VuiQá, Cresk, and Daes, who will take part in an art residency at Superposition in Lyon in June.

The artists use shapes, lines and bright colours to transform white skateboard decks into unique works.

The opening ceremony included live art presentation of Vietnamese-French artist Bouda and skating performances by Vietnamese artists.

The month-long exhibition at IDECAF, 31 Thai Van Lung street, opens at 7pm.
