ALEX FACE Thailand

Alex Face (Patcharapon Tangruen) is a Thai street artist and painter who has captivated art enthusiasts worldwide, expressing himself through murals, canvas paintings, and enormous bronze sculptures. His street art is characterized by a unique style that combines the fresh and immediate language of graffiti with virtuoso painting technique, resulting in art with an indelible impact and elaborate content.
He gained recognition in Thailand and later achieved success internationally, thanks to his highly recognizable iconography that engages the gaze of city dwellers in the places he intervenes, through massive paintings in public spaces that encourage reflection on contemporary social themes. His fame reached its peak in 2009, the year Alex Face became a father, a moment that brought about a strong sense of uncertainty about the world in which his daughter would grow up. Mardi, his daughter, is a constant presence in Face's artistic production, with her curious and concerned gaze becoming the central theme of Face's artistic vision. In his large canvases, she is sometimes depicted disguised as a bunny or as a totem with three sleepy and ironic eyes, observing the viewer and conveying a profound sense of weary vulnerability.
Alex Face has participated in numerous international street art festivals such as Peinture Fraîche Festival in Lyon, France (2019). His recent exhibitions include "Scorch and Drop" at Thinkspace Gallery (Gallery I) in Los Angeles, USA (2021), "Monument of Hope" at BANGKOK CITYCITY GALLERY in Bangkok, Thailand (2020), and "Fragile" at Art Porters Gallery in Singapore (2020). He also boasts an artwork in the permanent collection of the MOCA in Bangkok.
