«Line» by Alex Face
I think my favorite example would be my project in Yala province located in the south of Thailand, due to the fact that it is one of the three border provinces that are classified as conflict-affected area. In the span of twenty years Yala has faced shootings, bombings, and other disruptions which made the city had less and less community’s activity every year. When I had my project there I could see that my artwork could make a little change in the atmosphere and get people out of their homes to hang out, participate in conversations and so on.
Interview with ALEX FACE – «I consider myself both a painter and a street artist; I like to spray paint on public walls, but I also like to experiment and work with other mediums such as oil painting, acrylic, and other techniques. Actually, I like working alone in the studio as much as I enjoy going out and meeting random people on the streets and getting to know their thoughts and opinions on my work. I think most of my work addresses social events and concerns about the future, with my medium being my character.»

«Portrait 4#» by La dame qui colle
I chose the 4 # portrait. Drawing of a woman who falls and seems to get up. It is human-sized, it marks the existence of a woman in this place, in this street. It is a trompe l’oeil of reality. My job is to make people believe that the person is there and exists at that moment.

LA DAME QUI COLLE
Interview with La dame qui colle – «I am an artist committed to the survival of the planet and the place for all way of thinking. I chose to defend the place of women in town centers.
