About the artist
Alex Face (Patcharapon Tagruen) is an internationally recognised Thai graffiti artist who creates thought-provoking, site-based works in public spaces. His street art extends beyond Thailand and can be spotted in numerous locations worldwide. The artist rose to prominence in 2009, after becoming a father. Alex was concerned about the world in which his daughter, Mardi, will live in. Inspired, the artist conceived his signature character named after her — a three-eyed child dressed in a ragged rabbit suit, who sometimes closes her eyes and displays a weary, vulnerable look.

His recent participation in street art festival includes Peinture Fraîche Festival, Lyon, France (2019). His recent exhibitions include Very Miracle Show, Gallerie Very Yes, Reunion Island (2020), Mystical Creatures, Gallery Vertical, Chicago, USA (2019), Drifting Upstream, Galleria Ravagnan, Venice, Italy (2019).
