2002
when there were no complex tunnels competing for space below the earth
when the underground was built between the concept of reality and fantasy
the sound of a rattling spray can echoes through an abandoned building
filled with the remnants of destruction,
a community was forming amidst a collective imagination.
imagining
small alleyways and secret corners, all reeking of chaos and youth,
something they all shared
this community of youth was a place for escape, and an act of rebellion and confrontation,
or just simply a place where you could shout out
and be heard.
2022
the iron shutters of old buildings, forgotten, reopened
once cast aside, but now a place for a collection of voices
the voice of youth
inside a city called Bangkok, slowly sinking into the earth’s tears
inside a paralyzed truth
most of the shutters are sealed off
but the cries can still be heard
echoes float around the building, of multiple voices and screams
some of them escaping through the cracks of the sealed doors
some of them almost inaudible
some of them loud and rebellious
some of them.. filled with hope

ALEX FACE

b.1981, Chachoengsao, Thailand

Lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand

Earned his name as Thai graffiti artist, Alex Face maneuvers in the public space to provoke thoughts from city dwellers. His street art has grown boundless in public areas of Thailand as much as in other cities overseas, for example, Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Jakarta, Oslo, Amsterdam. His significant fame came in 2009 when he has become a father of a daughter, concerned about the becoming world in which she will live. Alex introduced a three-eyed child dressed a ragged rabbit suit, inspired by his newborn daughter, Mardi, who has sometimes her eyes closed, and gives passerbys a sense of weary vulnerability and wry look.
