In HCM City, every road has its
own feature making it different from others. If you want to buy some antique
articles you should go to Le Cong Kieu St., a luxurious and splendid wedding
dress go to Ba Thang Hai Blvd, etc. If someone intends to seek some nice
pictures, they think about coming to Nguyen Van Troi and Nam Ky Khoi Nghia St.
(in Phu Nhuan District).
It is often called Gallery
Street. There are about 50 small and big art-galleries on a three-km road
stretching from Nam Ky Khoi Nghia � Vo Thi Sau to Nguyen Van Troi � Hoang Van
Thu St. The prices range from 500,000 to 10 million VNĐ/per picture.
Painters specializing in
imitation pictures said that some paymasters, 9 years ago, rented a premise here
partially because of the better price for a place on Nam Ky Khoi Nghia
thanothers on Le Thanh Ton, Ly Tu Trong, and Le Loi (District 1).
Additionally, Nam Ky Khoi Nghia
� Nguyen Van Troi is on the main route on which the tourists pass on their way
from Tan Son Nhat Airport to the center of the city. So an art gallery opened
therewill more easily contact with more tourists. DC and Anh Thu were two first
ones present there. According to Mr. Tri, a painter of Gallery P.H, the
direction is that more and more art galleries will appear on these streets and
on a larger scale to meet the tourists� demand to enjoys works of art. To
attract both foreigners and domestic customers, art galleries here have been
introduced in some guide books.
