Vietnam may not be a place that often beeps on the international graffiti radar. But all that may be about to change. Since late 2014 Montana Cans has become available in Vietnam and the locals are very happy. We were lucky enough to get this interview with Daos501 who is one of Vietnam’s most well known writers. He says the graffiti movement in Vietnam 10 years ago looked as though it had more momentum. But now there are a lot more new young kids taking it seriously with the availability of serious graffiti tools. Check out his work and the interview after the jump.
