Chiang Mai Graffiti
Some people call it vandalism others call it art. Street art or Graffiti is global and the Thai's up in Chiang Mai have their own style. Some guys Tag called SOS can be found pretty much all over the city but what I found most amazing is that most of the graffiti around town is fairly large but not where I expected it to be. The train line is typical of graffiti artists but you'll be hard pressed to find any there, instead you have to go deep into derelict hotels and crazily enough on Temple walls as well as vacant lots with fences. Here's what I've been able to find over the past year.
They’re good at drawing aren’t they? There’s a mini optical illusion there too. But I somehow feel that the religious Thais wouldn’t like the “MONK IS GAY” thing.
Ironically that was sprayed on a temple wall
Hmm, direct offence.
Good to see they have respect for their temple. lol
I hate it – irresponsible spraying other people’s walls without permission – if they sprayed my wall i’d slap the little pricks – I’m not getting old am I?
I can understand that for sure! As an art if only there were more places people could express themselves through graffiti without on peoples own property.
Anyone know what the deal is with this power switch graffiti that’s popping up all over Bangkok? #BKK… instagram.com/p/Z8B3s9lihf/
I don’t like it. Paint on your own property. It makes a place look trashy and literally ruins the face of Chiang Mai.
can I get the address of this place? gonna visit Thailand this april.thanks
Do you have the location of all, if not most, of these arts?
