Alex Face: Scorch and Drop @ Thinkspace Projects, Los Angeles
Thinkspace is please to present Scorch and Drop, a new solo show by Alex Face. Patcharapol Tangruen (aka Alex Face / b. 1981) is a well-known and influential graffiti artist in Thailand. Alex studied architecture at Bangkok's King Mongktut Institute of Technology and earned a Bachelor's Degree in the Department of Fine and Applied Arts. An interest in architecture led Alex Face to explore and wander the streets and back alleys of Bangkok for abandoned buildings, sites that he eventually used as a canvas to develop his street art.
Using Alex Face as his alter ego, the artist attempts to create a link with the urban population, the underpriviliged of Bangkok and the surrounding provinces. His iconic character showcases the adventures of a disillusioned child in a baby rabbit costume who looks wise beyond his years, at first glance appearing cute, but all the time worrying about the future of our world.
