To All Bystanders
JWD Art space is excited to present ‘To All Bystanders’, an exhibition by Temporary West, a crew of street artists based in Bangkok. Temporary West was first formed in
Prachuap Khiri Khan, a coastal province in western Thailand, as the crew aim to enact a public mural to help revitalize the sub-culture scene in the province. Since then the crew has been actively engaged in numerous public mural and commercial projects across Thailand and overseas.
An exhibition, ‘To All Bystanders’ showcases an extensive practice of each crew member whose mediums aren’t limited to spray painting but photography, moving images, mixed media, and sculptures. With ideas centers around the concept of community and communication, authority and aggression along with subcultures and cityscapes.
The highlight of this exhibition is a wall that spans over 5 meters, featuring the ingenious transformation of street art for indoor display by artists from Temporary West. Each artist has conveyed their unique stories resulting in a graffiti art that is both distinctive and full of imaginative ideas.
Temporary West comprises a group of 10 artists: DEIO, HOIE, FREAK, MR.KREME, ORON, RKOI, YOUNGPRAY, PICABOO, MONTEMITH and Y?.
