Propaganda Art

Propaganda is commonly a form of political influence, but has also been used for campaigns to promote public health and safety. Vietnam's propaganda art truly came to light during the American War. Trumpeting everything from fighting to industrial production, this socialist style now has a very hip retro feel and can be found on items from old posters to handbags and tshirts. There are a few stores in Saigon that sell propaganda art emblazoned goodies such as reproduction posters that rally the population to 'Grow More Coffee'. Not surprisingly, many famous Vietnamese propaganda artists call HCMC home.
