Patcharapon Tangruen

There’s no way you aren’t at least vaguely familiar with the caricature of a somewhat grumpy child dressed in a cyclopic bunny suit. Mardi—as this character is named—is the star of Patcharapon, or Alex Face’s, body of work as a street artist. Mardi has appeared on walls throughout Thailand and beyond, notably spotted abroad in Taiwan, Korea, London and Berlin. Her daddy’s rise to international recognition, however, didn’t come by luck. Alex Face has been diligently scouting and painting walls for the last 15 years, which has steadily amounted to well-attended gallery shows in present times. Alex’s last big achievement was his solo exhibition Alive at Bangkok CityCity Gallery.

Definition of success: When you’ve finished a painting and love how it looks.
