Greg interviews celebrated Thai artist Alex Face (https://www.facebook.com/Alexfacebkk), known mostly for his large building-sized murals, which appear not only in Bangkok but also in other cities around the world. Alex begins by recounting his interest in art as a child, which slowly developed into a passion and later a career. He explains his love of graffiti (both legal and illegal) and then discusses his education and attempts to live in other countries, including Korea and later England.
Interestingly, Alex mentions becoming a parent as a major turning point in his life, but not one that led him to a more conventional job. Instead, he focused on finding a way to support his family as an artist and continuing the struggle no matter what obstacles got in his way.
Greg and Alex wind through multiple topics, including the art scene in Thailand relative to the West and the role of politics in modern Thai art. Listen in for an in-depth discussion with a truly unique Thai artist.
