Under the scorching sun of Hanoi, a group of young artists meticulously wield their brushes to paint colorful art murals to help combat COVID-19. 

Nguyen Manh Quang, the group’s representative, said the project 'Fighting the Pandemic like Fighting Your Enemies' was aimed at honoring frontliners and calling for social awareness in protecting public health. 

“We first painted a 15-square-meter mural in Hoan Kiem District’s Phuc Tan Commune," Quang said. 

"We later received support to make big murals, ranging from 20 square meters to 105 square meters, in Dong Da, Ha Dong, and Tay Ho Districts.”

The next destination is Cau Giay District. The group sets a goal to cover walls of 10 to 20 square meters in the Vietnamese capital with art on the theme of COVID-19 fighting and prevention. 

Quang said the project was funded by artists and some donors.

He expressed the expectation that district authorities and Hanoians could give helping hands to spread the idea, especially finding big, plain walls for these artworks.
