Information

The writing's on the wall - Thai graffiti artist Alex Face is teaming up with his French counterpart Jace to turn the 1st floor of Alliance Francaise Bangkok into a work of art. From Monday, they will work for four days individually and together on an exhibition called "Entree Libre", meaning free admission, reviving and transforming the walls of seven rooms in the former offices of the Embassy of France's Department of Cooperation and Culture. Street art fans are welcome to come along and watch them work during the four days. On Jan 31, an opening night event will be held, with the two teaming up to create work, merging their distinct styles into a unique art piece as visitors watch. Alex Face, whose real name is Patcharapol Tangruen, is a well-known and influential graffiti artist in Thailand whose architecture studies and curiosity led him to seek out abandoned buildings with surfaces where he could express himself. Watch the artists work on the 1st floor of Alliance Francaise on Sathon Road from Monday until Jan 31. After that the ‘‘Entre´e Libre’’ exhibition will be on display for three months. Free admission. Call 02-670-4231.
