Clash Of The Artists

Usually, many events happen in Bangkok which makes it (very!) easy to miss out on some.

Of course there are a lot of activities that don't interest me at all, but I was glad to be alerted by my friend Leo of the Art Battle Bangkok. (*)

Start of the Art Battle Bangkok!

This happened last Saturday with a mix of Thai and international artists.

The venue was an unknown hotel to me - The Fig Lobby Bangkok - just the outside looked already very cool! (**)

The concept is that each artist gets 20 minutes to finish his/her artwork, with 2 'battles' of 6 artists each.

Each 'battle' has 2 winners who will compete in the 3rd and final round, until 1 artist 'survives' as the winner!

Tools of the trade, white canvas, table, and a bucket of water.

Artists getting ready for a group photo, from left to right: Underhatdaddy, Thyme Eksiripong, Mehdi Fahraji, John Lapy, KULAY, Kolahon, and Irina Rezwan.

Interesting Pop-Art urinals, but perhaps a bit sexist? Those mouths look very female to me...

Underhatdaddy vs. West.

The DJ played supposedly suitable LOUD background music, which made me realize once again that I'm a dinosaur!

And the winner is .... (drum roll sound).

It's Mehdi Fahraji!

I thought it was a fun event that gave the audience a rare opportunity to see how these artists work!

The only issue I had was with the online voting system, whenever I'm being asked to log in again (& again), I give up, and can't be bothered anymore.

Oh, don't forget, the next Art Battle here is March 16 @ 7:00 pm!
