El Mac | Kosoom by the Mekong | Sai Gon | Viet Nam

El Mac painted this beautiful mural in front of Sàn Art, an independent artist space, and just outside the offices of The Propeller Group in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam | It is based on a photo of Kosoom, the grandmother of El Mac’s girlfriend | All of the photographs included in this video as well as the footage of motorbikes zooming through the city were taken by El Mac | Part of his process, is documenting different people from different places and selecting a handful to paint on walls around the world | This video piece is meant to be a reflection of how El Mac saw the world of Viet Nam for the first time, taking it all in, and juxtaposing the fast paced life in the city with this giant portrait that would literally slow people down in admiration as they passed by | Music: Yes – Heart Of The Sunrise | Thanks: The Propeller Group, Sàn Art | elmac.net
