About the artist
Alex Face (Patcharapon Tangruen) is a Thai graffiti artist who 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. 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 in a ragged rabbit suit, inspired by his daughter, Mardi, who has sometimes her eyes closed and gives passersby a sense of weary vulnerability and wry look.
