Patcharapol Tangruen, also known as Alex Face, is a well-known and influential graffiti artist in
Thailand.Alex studied architecture and earned a Bachelor’s Degree at the Department of Fine
& Applied Arts. An interest in architecture led Alex Face to explore and wander the streets and
alleys of Bangkok for abandoned buildings, buildings that he eventually used as a canvas to
develop his street art and where he could express himself. He then created Alex Face, a
character with an aged, disillusioned child’s face wearing animal costumes. Through his graffiti,
Alex Face especially attempts to create a link with the urban population, the underprivileged of
Bangkok and the provinces.
