The coronavirus-inspired murals on the external walls of a house in Hanoi are still the apple of local reasidents’ eye even after the COVID-19 crisis has raged around the world for more than a year.

Le Long, a street artist, secured the house owner’s consent to paint his murals in late March 2020, when Vietnam was resolutely battling COVID-19.

The wall paintings remain to command the full attention of passers-by at the Van Phu residential quarter in Ha Dong District, Hanoi.

Everyone stops to have a look at the coronavirus, vaccine, or earth imagery whenever they go past the four-story building.

Long spray-painted all the images in order to convey the message “Stay Strong – Let’s Stay Home.”

He had searched for information and images on the Internet and transformed them into colorful murals.

He even hired a crane to reach the walls as high as 20 meters on the top floor.

'Stay Strong – Let’s Stay Home' is what Le Long, a street artist, wants to convey via his spray-painted murals on the walls of a house at the Van Phu residential quarter in Ha Dong District, Hanoi. Photo: Ha Thanh
