Alex Face

Alex Face (a.k.a. Patcharapon Tangruen) is one of Thailand’s most respected and prolific street artists. Born in 1981, he is a graduate of the Department of Fine Art at the King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in Bangkok. On the surface, Alex Face’s works appear playful and lighthearted, but upon closer inspection, each of his pieces reveals deeper themes. His work often contains commentary on poverty, environment, and the present and future of society. His iconic bunny character, Mardi, was initially inspired by his daughter and represents the feeling of confronting a troubled world as a vulnerable child. See more of Alex Face’s work below.
