BANGKOK — Four Thais, three Koreans, two Japanese and two Taiwanese artists are coming to occupy a Charoen Krung gallery with their works for a month.

Mitr, which means “comrades,” presents 11 established and up-and-coming street, graffiti and mixed media artists from four Southeast Asian countries early next month at a riverside art space.

Veteran graphic artist Thaweesak Srithongdee aka Lolay will lead the crew including psychedelic street artist Hideyuki Katsumata from Japan, Korean black-and-white graffiti artist GR1 and Taiwan’s Mr. Ogay, whose works mostly involve funny but possibly traumatizing cartoons of naked old men.

The exhibition runs Feb. 3 through the end of the month at Bridge Art Space. Admission is free. The opening reception starts at 7pm with appearances by all artists and a party starting about 9pm.

Cafe-shophouse-art space Bridge is located on Soi Charoen Krung 51. Get there by walking from BTS Saphan Taksin’s exit No. 4.
