Ho Chi Minh City University of Fine Arts (Vietnamese language: Đại học Mỹ thuật Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh) is a university in Bình Thạnh District, Ho Chi Minh City. The predecessor of this school was the École des Dessin, founded by André Joyeux in 1913, which became the École des Arts appliqués de Gia Đinh from 1940-1971 (Trung học Trang trí Mỹ thuật Gia Định).[1]

Under the administration of Republic of Vietnam, from 1971, the school was upgraded to become Saigon College of Fine Arts. The Fine Arts College was founded in 1976. In 1981, the Vietnamese prime minister decided to found the university as it is today.
