Vietnamese French painter Cyril Kongo has opened his first gallery in Hanoi with the ambition of showcasing a range of graffiti pieces to local art lovers.

Kongo is of both Vietnamese and French descent, with a Vietnamese father and a French mother. He spent his childhood in Ho Chi Minh City before departing the country to spend time in the Democratic Republic of Congo and France.

Kongo is one of the few graffiti artists to be selected by some of the world’s leading brands, including Hèrmes, Chanel, Richard Mille, and Maserati, to participate in a number of art projects.

The opening of his first gallery on Trang Tien street in Hanoi brings him a step closer to achieving his dream of bringing graffiti art to people in his fatherland.
