These paintings will depict life of rhino with message of the species protection.

This is a major activity in the Rhino art week organized by Change organization and the People’s Committee in Nguyen Thai Binh Wards with the expectation of attracting 10,000 visitors and participants in interactive activities in the city.

The week is a prominent highlight in the campaign “End of using rhino horn”. The walls with representation of rhino are places where visitors can watch and experience new feeling. The week is a combination between graffiti art and interactive activities in a bid to call for stopping rhino consumption and protection of the species from extinction amongst the community, local administrations and young people.

Ten leading graffiti artists such as Trang Suby, Florian Nguyen, Danny Dao... will paint these picture in front of people.

Visitors can participate in the activity by leaving their fingerprint in the walls as a commitment to the wildlife protection. Additionally, visitors can partake in an interesting activity named “ Who steals rhino horns”  by incarnating a detective to follow clue hidden in 12 pictures in the walls to find out the culprit.

12 graffiti walls will be preserved on alleys with the hope to attract more visitors to the city.
