I'm gonna take a break from talking about dogs and cats just for a moment to participate in some sharing of graffiti that a few other people in South East Asia are currently participating in. I don't know if you will see this @jack.russelle and @gabe.radke but here is my addition to the fun little round-robin you guys are doing as far as street art is concerned.
It's hard to tell just by looking at it but the top says "Krabi Clean City" and this art installation, as well as the cleanup drive initialized by non-profit group Trash Hero was something wonderful that was happening in the local community right before Covid shut everything down. The work was done with permission and I would imagine that the artist was paid (but I don't really have any idea.)
This next one is on the side of a riverside cafe that I go to from time to time and while it isn't part of the cleanup initiative, I still quite like it.
Located on the property wall of the Ammartpanichnakul High School in Krabitown is the "Krabi Art Walk" that leads to the art museum that is next to the white temple in the middle of downtown. This wall was perfect for this because each of the squares is reserved for a particular artist, many of which are the actual students at the school. What you end up with is a government-sanctioned mashup of different art styles that change on a regular basis. I believe that this project began as Krabi was attempting to differentiate itself from other tourist destinations as an "art city."
I don't know if they have actually accomplished that or not, and we likely wont know until the pandemic is behind us, hopefully by the end of this year in time for high season.
Well, that's it for now, I'll make my way out there and try to get some more shots as I find them. Tell me what you think? Am I doing it right?
