The first time street artist Patcharapol Tangruen sprayed his pseudonym Alex Face on an old car in 2002, he did not know that in the coming decades his graffiti, paintings, sculptures and other art pieces would be well-received by art enthusiasts and the public. In the beginning, Patcharapol’s signature artwork was a graphic of half his face. After Patcharapol became a father, his young daughter inspired him to create an iconic character — a moody-looking three-eyed childlike figure in a rabbit suit.
Because of this cute character, masterful techniques and meaningful messages, Patcharapol became a renowned Thai artist whose exhibitions sold out in Thailand and abroad. To review, summarise and analyse his career over the past two decades, Patcharapol held the exhibition “20th Year Alex Face” at a four-storey building and warehouse located at 127 Na Ranong Road off Rama IV Road.
