Walking in Bangkok | Reappearing in the old town, the charming Chinese-Thai mixed-race in Chinatown Lane

By
Strolling through the streets of Bangkok, you can see the traditional Thai style, the splendid temple palace, the pillars of the epic plot of Ramayana, and the floating people on the Chao Phraya River. In addition, this "City of Angels" has never been colonized, but has unexpectedly become a confluence of cultures of various countries; the horseshoe arches built from the ancient Roman architecture pay tribute to the gorgeous decoration of Victorian architecture - this Everything was the result of a large influx of people from all over the 19th century. These diverse architectural aesthetics have been passed down to the present day. After the reinterpretation of the traditional architectural vocabulary of Southeast Asia, the design energy broke out. It has not only become the emerging aesthetic indicator in Asia, but now it is a unique cultural scene in Bangkok. In addition to the Western colonial architecture, the popular Chinatown in Bangkok, which has been popular in recent years, is always reminiscent of the old and new atmosphere of Taipei's Dadaotun and Dihua Street. Take Yaowarat Road as the main thoroughfare and all the way to Charoen Krung Road. The sights are all densely populated shop townhouses, including the function space of the market, restaurants, theaters, etc. Chinese-style residences, with their nostalgic and grassroots Chinese style, have attracted many Chaoqing companies to start their business in recent years, and they have made their mark on Soi Nana (reviewing Huafang Coffee Shop, ONEDAY WALLFLOWERS & NANA COFFEE). The newly-recognized old-fashioned tenement houses have opened their doors on the streets. These Peugeot-style "Chinese-Thai mixed-races" have unexpectedly become stunning flowers in the old city.

The first affair out of Hua Lamphong is the home of the corner of Soi Nana Lane. - "103 Bed and Brews". In the past, when new thinking had not yet entered the region, the Chinese street was mostly a market for daily trading of Chinese people, among which the Chinese medicine shop was the most prosperous; and the former site of 103 Bed and Brews was a Chinese medicine shop specializing in the import of traditional herbs. From the Chinese iron gates at the door, to the wooden window frames, carved round chairs and bamboo curtains, and even the Chinese-style floor tiles painted in Portugal, the details of the space show the traces of the life of Chinese businessmen. The owner cleverly retains the old soul of the Chinese-style architecture, and does not trace the details of Thai contemporary art, giving 103 Bed and Brews a mix of Chinese and Thai blood.

Retaining traditional fine craftsmanship: Shanghai’s gossip girl Zhou Wei’s old artifact pursuit tour

By

Zhou Wei and our café in Nanjing East Road, the most popular neighborhood in Shanghai, are filled with a Chinese gossip and she is full of love. The inner heart is full of old souls full of love for traditional groceries. After leaving the company in 2011, which was upside down and full of fast fashion, Zhou Wei decided to listen to her own voice, leave the air-conditioned room, walk out of the high-rise jungle in the city, and start her field trip to find traditional hand-made objects. Unlike the e-commerce or brand of the new generation, you can find the traces by easily entering keywords on the Internet. Traditional handicraft workshops or old grocery stores are only in the most simple way to be embedded in life and real lanes, want to find them. The only way is to walk to the door of the shop in person. "You must not drive because you have missed a few alleys in the village." Zhou Xiao smiled and shared the experience accumulated over the years. "The best way. It is to take a long-distance bus, and each station gets off the train and drills into the lane to find a circle." At the same time of the visit, Zhou Hao also bought it, often ending the day, and also carrying a small basket carrying a bamboo basket, straw hat and earthen bag. Waiting for someone else's seemingly inconspicuous, but satisfying loot to return home. Although only the Greater Shanghai area is used as a field, the difference between the generations and the dialects of the villages often makes Zhou Yi impressed. "There was a time when the Fengxian District near the seaside encountered an entire family of aunts who were weaving. They were big. Sitting in the living room in a circle, chatting and weaving, although they are all Shanghainese, but the local voices they chatt with are too heavy for me to understand, but also have to send their sons to translate (laugh)." But the most What Zhou Wei was surprised at was not the difference in language, but the everyday clothes that the aunts wore and they felt ordinary. "I just saw that the aunts only had a kind of simple intimacy. When I looked closely, I found out that They don't wear the ready-to-wear clothes on the market, but the clothes made from their own hand-woven fabrics! It's too memorable." I grew up in the Shikumen alley, and I moved away until I was 18 years old. Zhou Wei’s Growing up memories are everywhere worthy of the taste of the Shanghai style. In the alley of Shanghai, there is usually a grocery store selling everything, hand-made utensils, small snacks, candied fruit, etc., even when the home phone is not popular, there is a public phone, and there is a call to find someone. The grocery store owner will open his throat and shout out who will pick up the phone, so who lives in what industry, the neighbors are familiar with each other. "Everyone knows that Shanghai people used to wear pajamas to go out. In fact, because there is no difference in privacy/public space between the old people, the old Shanghai people feel that even if they go to the grocery store, they feel that it is still my home." I said with emotion, "I have visited a grocery store in other places. After chatting, I found that a master who supplies a bamboo basket lives next door to my house, and I don’t even know it. If it was in the previous hall. It is absolutely impossible to happen." Four years ago, Zhou Yi gathered the hand-made masters and groceries visited by the field to form the book "Shanghai Grocery Shop", and continued to write the column of the same name for the "Xinmin Evening News". At the time, the hand-picked people were the youngest in their 50s, and the oldest was over 90 years old. In the past few years, Zhou Wei still visited them from time to time, but nearly 1/2 of the more than 20 grocery shops or master craftsmen. Has been closed for retirement. Zhou Wei said with a shallow smile, "What I can do is to use records to leave what they once existed. I hope that even if they gradually disappear into their daily lives, don't disappear too quickly in the memory of our generation. "." This handcrafted use is smart." Master Chen is 71 years old. I am a blacksmith. I started to learn to knock on lead (white iron) at the age of 17 and follow the teacher in the factory. I usually practice when I get off work. Later, when I was laid off, I started to pick up my own work. It has been more than 50 years now! It takes 8 hours a day now. It’s not very hard to do this. It’s hard to beat and beat, so it’s not a physical activity, but I’ve just been learning that the hand has been bleeding and the adhesive plaster is full. The sizes that are often done are already in my mind. Others are more complicated. If people have requirements, I will draw them and ask if they want this thing. There are 6 sizes like watering buckets, which can be customized according to different needs. If the hole on the head is a little smaller, the water will be poured a little farther, and if it is a little bigger, it can be poured close, and each person's request is different. I have brought three apprentices, but I have not done it now. I think this is making money slowly. The spoon used for making radish cakes and oil blocks in the store sells best, 5 yuan a day. If you have a day, you can do 50, look at the mood. On the holidays, like the Peach Blossom Festival, there are many people, and there are many foreigners. I have already made a name for myself. The business is very good. The new field is my family. Every day someone orders something with me and earns some money. Kung Fu money, eating and drinking is no problem. "Only you can sell your own, you can call it a workshop"|Yang Shifu is 70 years old, and he is a craftsman. We call this "round work" and specialize in round things. There is also a kind of "Fang Zuo", which is made of chairs and furniture. I studied art with my master at the age of 16 and now I have 50...

There is a kind of love. "Before I haven't fallen in love with you, you have already fallen in love with me." With such a romantic happiness, walking in a row of colorful houses in the blue sky of Madrid's hot sun On the streets of the encircled, when you met Sala Equis, the timeliness and love of love seemed to radiate from the building; the bricks and tiles were once carved with the smell of wind and frost until the old building met.

In addition to watching live performances, it is also a place for social and drinking. The vines that climbed up the wall and the gaze fell to the top of the steel frame. The architect, based on his original use, designed a large skylight to shed a natural light during the day; facing the projection screen, surrounded by the surrounding Beach chairs and cushions, a childlike swing descending from the roof, and uncompromisingly contrasting with the mottled walls. The calmness of the old building embraces a new laid-back atmosphere, and satisfies Sala Equis's relaxed and natural character. The original film screening hall is now used to showcase independent films and art films, continuing the erotic atmosphere of the predecessor's adult theater. A total of 55 seats of auditorium, with a gorgeous enchanting crimson velvet and brown round table for People enjoy a refreshment while enjoying a refreshing experience in the gorgeous but lazy space. In addition, there is no thought in the corridor connecting the space. There is a cocktail bar and the same texture of dark velvet.

The elegant corner of the comfortable nest, the slightly decadent space is full of charm and retro style. As a century-old building, Sala Equis...

Dear parents, do you really love me: public view "Your child is not your child"

Humans have racked their brains to list a few causes and effects, trying to resolve the mysteries of the "subject" and "object". However, the "parent-child relationship" of human beings, after the baptism of the ancient civilization, has already jumped out of the ranks of "reproduction" and has risen to the consideration of "life". The so-called "mother and child" is gradually becoming a kind of spirituality - when the amniotic fluid ebbs, the baby falls from the floating state, and with the rupture of the umbilical cord, a pain that separates from the mother is produced - a series of gestation, robustness, birth, and end To say goodbye, it seems that all the life in the future is no longer only "feeding" and "absorption", but is divided into two independent individuals.

In 2006, we put the soul into the "Dangerous Mind", let the slender and well-understood Xie Zhengjie replace us, and play a grand shackle with the deformed education system, hit the stone with eggs, and finally bloom everywhere.

At the same time, we also buried the first class with Chen Haoyuan. This painful and unavoidable adult world is "they exploded the day before graduation." For more than a decade, we have grown into a "legendary adult" with the growth of public viewing. However, the confusion of growth is not like going to school, there will be no real "graduation" day.

One day, Qiao Yi discovered that the peacock on campus knew all her troubles. The peacock asked her: I can help, but I would rather not want to exchange things? "Your child is not your child", originally published by the writer Wu Xiaole in 2014. The author of the book is a "family teacher" and is keen on the position of "outsiders" and "interveners". Gently staring at the tormented young souls, looking into the emotional abyss of each family, and finally showing a variety of "love-like" but "no love". The novelist Ursula Kroeber Le Guin once said: "Growing is not the death of a child, but the survival of a child." Every young man in the book is experiencing a fight of life.

"By describing it with fables or sci-fi, ridiculousness will become realistic, and our current realism will be ridiculous. "The filming of the day before they graduated" Zheng Youjie, although the adaptation of the series passed the magical and strong visual style, weakened the refraction of the social image, but at the beginning of the process of "the cat's child", it was frequent I think of the "Taiwan University Overseas Chinese's killing of stray cats" in the past few days. In the past, those hazes that could not be seen in the news marquees finally had an extension of deja vu in the scriptwriter's pen. The teenager took the responsibility of taking the milk cat with the self-blame that caused the family to be defeated. Just because he discovered that if he killed a cat in the "parallel world", he would get the full score of the "national certification"..... "If you can't live without it, you can only continue to collapse." The child of the cat is in a soft and unpredictable context. It is difficult to tell the audience to open the icing of the "outsider" and be surprised to see it wrapped up.

On the contrary, through the interpretation of the horns, we are able to penetrate the life of these mothers, mourn the scars left by them in the long-term patriarchal society, and countless scorn, abandonment and violence from marriage and family. The harm these mothers suffered, so that they can only obey the mainstream value, when "Wang Zi Cheng Long, Wang Nong Cheng Feng" went into flames, the love of the dear is turned into a double-sided blade, how invincible, the wounds that swept away How stubborn is it. If love becomes a means, the imbalance of education becomes an unexploded bomb in the child's mind, and it is forbearance, fire, and eruption - and then it becomes a fact in the social version that we think is quite far away. "Your child is not your child" notice, parents' voices. "Your child is not your child" notice, parents' voices. "Your children are not your children, but the children that "life" is longing for. They come from you, but they are not from you; they are with you, but they do not belong to you. You can Give them love, but don't give them thoughts, because they have their own thoughts; you can shelter their bodies, but you can't hide their souls, because their souls live in the house of "Tomorrow", that is you I can't think of it in my dreams." - "The Prophet. On the Child, 1923, Gibran. Put a sentence in your mouth, "Your child is not your child", feel the decomposition of the words, and wipe away the sweet taste of bitterness; perhaps we all understand that love is an instinct, but "how to love", But you need to wipe the practice again and again. After the broadcast, Jane Geng, one of the main screenwriters, left a note for the "Children of Cats": "Let them go." - No need to embellish, love is actually "reluctant to hurt the other side." Just as Wei Ruzhen's theme song tailored for the series, gentle and tirelessly sang: "Don't cry.", she said: "Because I have already cried, I have to comfort the other person and say, "Don't cry, don't cry." Even if the persecution of the system is irreparable, we can embrace the dear at any time, try to understand, and then agree with the children who face the pain of growing up, let love become a plaster to heal the pain.

ON THE ROAD: More interesting than travel destinations, those happening on the road, Japanese JR train advertising

By

In Japanese, trains and everything related to them are collectively referred to as "railway culture." The charm of the railway is so obvious that it feels omnipotent: the train that runs on the railroad tracks is as if you can reach any corner of the world. The railway will make people feel lost ambition: the time in the train is slowed down, the sound of the wheel running over the railway replaces the second hand; in such a timeline, the destination becomes blurred and far away, no longer important, only the journey itself becomes I feel all about it. The details of the journey form the scenery, the changing lights on the platform, the sound of the train entering the station, and the breeze that passes through the platform, which makes the journey real and full. In order to promote the railway and Shinkansen to the whole world, the JR Art Society of Japan held the "Art of Shinkansen" exhibition in Los Angeles in early April, and invited 11 artists from all over the world to produce 15 short animations to express the journey in a brisk and lovely way. All kinds of moments. The flight attendants on the platform, the precise timetables, the colorful station lunches and the highly efficient cleaning staff... these vivid scenes remind people of the excitement of sitting on the Shinkansen for the first time. In fact, JR Japan Club has always been a propagandist. Through a series of posters and travel plans, they show people that after taking the Shinkansen train, all the wonderful stories seem to be "on the road." Every train is shouting at the vibration arm | Departure, northeast! (くぜ,北北) After the 311 earthquake in 2011, JR East Japan not only resumed the railway in the northeastern region in May of that year, but also launched the Shinkansen travel plan in the same year to revitalize the northeastern sightseeing. In the first year, I conveyed a firm belief in supporting the Northeast with a solid three-color match. From the second year onwards, the planning posters gradually added more elements of scenery and food, and conveyed the charm of the Northeast in a more colorful way. After that, JR also invited actresses to serve as the protagonist of the poster, walking through the four seasons in the Northeast. In the 2017 show, the young actor Songgang Moyou, who can see her in the northeast of the spring, sees cherry blossoms in the spring, visits the art gallery in the summer and bathes in the winter. Let people who are in a hurry look at the poster and they are tempted: Ah, I really want to go to the Northeast. Youth does not die, the train does not stop | Youth 18 tickets "Youth 18" ticket is a discount ticket issued by JR East Japan Club, although the name is 18 years old, but there is no age limit, everyone can buy. With this ticket, you can ride unlimited times in one day...

For thousands of years, humans have followed the vitality and energy of the earth to enhance their knowledge and develop a "people-oriented" economic value system under the wave of industrial manufacturing. However, excessive resource demand eventually caused the earth's mother to exceed the load, and the pleasant living environment has become a glory yesterday. We are sweating under the umbrella of skyscrapers, like a sigh of sorrow. When deforestation, reclamation and land reclamation, when only the consortium of immediate interests is seen, I am still "developing" around the world. The residents of the southeastern countries of the four countries have already awakened the first step, and the word "environmental protection" has been rushed into daily life and even led the trend. . Located in the rolling hills and lines, Kamikatz in Tokushima Prefecture is interwoven with rice terraces. The water-green mirrors of the terraces reflect the mountains and the light. Walking through them, not only feel the natural grace, but also deeply recognize the It is a tribute from the local residents to the natural environment. This small town of 1600 people, like other non-majority areas in Japan, faces the loss and aging of young people, but the elderly residents who are deeply rooted in it are actively investing in "Ye Ye" (seasonal cultivation, The agriculture that produces and sells edible mosaics and mountain vegetables, for example, the raw materials and ingredients of "wife's food" in Japanese cuisine, makes the Kami-Shinmachi still vibrant, and it is also a representative indicator of industrial activation in Japan's aging population. The residents of Sakagami-cho also realized that the greenhouse gas and toxins caused by the garbage incinerator caused damage to the environment and food crops. In 2003, they launched the “Zero Waste” campaign and decisively abolished the garbage truck system. Garbage is taken to a unified recycling center in the town. In addition to reducing incineration and driving expenses, the 45 waste sorting projects set up so far have succeeded in making waste “recycled and reused”; the town even announced that it will phase out waste incineration and landfills by 2020. Recycling has become a habit that residents have become accustomed to, and now the town has reached nearly 80% resource recovery rate. Inspired by the townspeople's respect for Mother Earth, Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP, the architectural firm of Japanese new architect Hiroshi Nakamura, created a rest home for the town from resource recycling. - Kamikatz Public House, managed by TRANST GENERAL OFFICE, a self-proclaimed "Cultural Catalyst", transformed into a RISW & WIN Brewing Co.

Spreading the art and signal, talking about food exchange: Hualien Yiwen Salon Tea Bar, Shidong East

By
Photography/ TinLee. Come to the most prosperous business district in Hualien - Ditching Tail, this street is carrying many city scenery and stories; building a shop on the Gully, the more charming the windy night Venues, assorted food stalls, theaters, and pools are changing from time to time. These prosperous streetscapes are no longer the case. Standing on the quiet old street, I occasionally greeted the cat's probe and passed several emerging Wenqing cafes. From the free street to the Fujian Street, one of the houses, one unobtrusive, hidden, hidden There is a miniature art gallery and a tea bar. This is the new base of Hualien Art and Literature. The low-key building has a golden door in front of the door. The owner of the island, Liao Xiubo (Aguang), talks about the house, as if someone finally found the excitement of smallness and smiled and shared the reason. "This space is the old police dormitory in the past, and it exists like a monument. So I put a golden number on the door and made it like a government agency to create a kind of "micro-historic" taste." For the roots, use the space to tell the humanities story, and talk about the initiation of the island's East Translation Institute. "I was born in Panama, but I stayed in Hualien before the fourth grade. This neighborhood is very meaningful to me, except for the place where I grew up, and the place I think is the most Hualien! Three years ago, I moved with my family. Back to Hualien, I saw that everything in the past has changed. Those in the ditch have been demolished, the riverbed has been covered up... It can’t be connected with the memory, and the brain is blank.” After returning to Hualien, Aguang applied for art subsidy. I chose to make graffiti creations in this neighborhood. I painted a total of five walls in front and back. "I always think that the conditions of Hualien are very good. I feel that there are more and more expressionful and independent stores here. We started to start a business plan.” The concept of “collecting, eating, and brainstorming” is used to classify the space. The first is the island’s collection department. Many collections of collections and current art exhibitions are gathered here. Through the display of interpretation space, the elements of different cultures, such as Central and South American elements, Taiwanese folk art, Middle Ages objects, and Japanese artifacts, are attempted to merge "multipleness" into an independent style. Tracing back to the roots, in ancient times, people's collection behaviors were often satisfied with the physiological needs; while the generations changed, the human collection behavior gradually changed, and began to use the ability to collect, penetrate into every field of life, and cultivate a collection. Appreciate and create a unique aesthetic of life. Aguang also borrows scenery from nature and brings it into the trajectory of life. The living green plants and leaves are contrasted with vivid animals and insect specimens. The space is filled with tangible and intangible old and new conflicts, so that the senses experience is quietly formed. A common language. Island East Translation Institute - the east side of the island, a broad concept; the translation office, is a military unit, receiving Moss cryptographic messages, an abstract symbolic language. I hope that through this unit, I will transform the artistic and artistic information that I thought of as abstract and distance in the past into a context that is easy to understand and understand. Laughing that he is the director, Aguang interprets the name of the store. A new exhibition held regularly every month, talking about the cooperation with art creators, Aguang believes that "through the exhibitions of different artists, it is a very interesting way of operation to match the selections and works of art. Art galleries, people usually feel that there is a sense of distance. Although the empty space can emphasize the work itself, I want to emphasize the relationship between the work and the environment.” Let the works of art play the leading role, and then change the surrounding mix and arrangement. To create a perfectly coordinated visual image, so that visitors can pay attention to the paintings due to the ingenuity of the furnishings, or be attracted by the paintings, and then discover the surrounding objects. Complement each other, let art blend in with everyday life, and simulate the possibility of numerous home furnishings for the paintings on display, so that people can be more relaxed in the process of interpreting art and improving the aesthetics of life. "Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde" by Diego Lazzarin "AZAZEL" by Diego Lazzarin "In this small space, the future will continue to be carried out and stacked through various types of art activities." Ah Guang, not only serves as a curatorial event, but also acts as an artist brand. Diego Lazzarin, a fantasy artist from Italy, can see his book Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde and the figurine; Diego Lazzarin presents the spiritual garden and mysterious species in his heart through painting and engraving. For example, the self-presenting corner of the showcase is a strange yellow creature - AZAZEL, 20 cm tall, likes to live on the river, the main occupation is to prey on the water creatures, have a beautiful voice, and love to sing their favorite songs loudly. Turning on Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde, the observations of the Earth by the aliens of Diego Lazzarin are narrative backgrounds, interpreting human behavior through the perspective of aliens, and gaining a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of the earth and human beings. The 160-page full of destructive disorganized content, full of fantasy narrative techniques and strong color style, is a classic reading that is worthy of the universe's exploration and love of hunting style, collection and recollection.

Maker Spirit|The old workshop in the cafe, open the nostalgic paradise of the five senses: Vienna SUPERSENSE MANUFACTORY & CAFE

Photography/ Cinny & Gebhard Sengmüller & Marco Christian Krenn. Part of Images Courtesy of SUPERSENCE. When I was young, I always loved playing with my father’s black negative camera, and the heavy old Minolta was hanging on my chest. It’s a digital camera that doesn’t exist yet. In the era, the film was expensive and lacked digital post-production software. My father often told me that pressing the shutter is a prudent "ceremony." In recent years, "Ancient Props" and "Vinyl Records" seem to be synonymous with the tastes of the young artists of the following times; casually visiting Dadaotun or Qingtian Street, they can always find charming carvings in small but mysterious shops. A birch dressing table, a full-length mirror with a neoclassical feel, or a vinyl record player with a sense of grandeur and an old-fashioned charm. In this era of rapid digitalization of information flow, old things, old crafts and old houses are more precious, trying to teach us to slow down, appreciate and cherish.

The pity for the old things is not only on the island, the scene comes to Vienna, in the Leopoldstadt area where few tourists stop, SUPERSENSE MANUFACTORY & CAFE is here. The nostalgic boom in the city. The predecessor of the building was originally the royal palace of the past, the high arches made of marble, the gorgeous and vivid colors and decorative style of Baroque... Although the interior was completely renovated, it was still able to sniff from the pattern of gracefulness. The aristocratic atmosphere left behind by the building. Photography/ Gebhard Sengmüller. Photography/ Cinny. Photography/ Gebhard Sengmüller. Photography/ Gebhard Sengmüller. Wandering in the store, always inadvertently attracted by the old objects that radiate the sense of the times. The front of the spacious indoor cafe, with an old-fashioned bar, hand-painted Gutenberg fonts depicting fine bean bills and today's craft beer; on one side of the wall is a piece of old-fashioned, old-fashioned Black and white photo. Compared to the “concept store”, SUPERSENSE is more like an old-school museum made up of old cameras, old printing presses, writing desks and antique sofas; classical space style, talented creative team, and intimate and charming service and objects. Engage visitors to linger on. Photography/ Cinny....

Freeing the life from the illegal spirit on the wall: From Paris to New Delhi, the first graffiti artist C215 in India

By

Before I knew C215, I thought that graffiti is a kind of damage to the urban beauty. After I knew C215, I started to search for graffiti that might be left on the trash can, brick wall, and lift door on the way to and from work. Imagine the graffiti brain. The rebellion in the middle, the cry of social injustice, every thick line and the point of fainting, is like the exclamation point of the loudest volume. C215 is called Christian Guemy. Just like TAKI 183, JULIO 204, FRANK 207, these famous graffiti take the pseudonym of the street number. Among them, TAKI183 is the first graffiti artist. Christian Guemy thinks the number is like a prisoner number, symbolizing graffiti. The illegal spirit of art and rebellion. For him, life is sometimes like a prison, we are just a nameless pawn. In the face of such illegal artistic behavior, why did C215 choose to disclose its real name? "When you paint on a train, public building or a blank wall, you will certainly want to protect yourself. But for me, I try to paint beautiful things. These art can be understood. I don't think I The process of creation is very savage. On the contrary, it reflects the good life in the local area.” He likes to paint in each city. The favorite city is “the next city”, from lifestyle, cultural uniqueness, architecture and even law. In the city in his eyes, through the "experimental creation" graffiti on the wall, and thus get the experience of new things, spending a lot of airfare and travel graffiti is very worthwhile for the C215. Wandering on the edge of contemporary art may be more conservative. From the 1990s when Indian contemporary art emerged in the world market, no artist chose to create on the wall until C215 came from Paris and became the first in India. Created by graffiti artists. Like the early death of the Indian female painter Amrita Sher-Gil, the $1.5 million high-priced "Village" and the $1.36 million deal with Francis Newton Souza's "Men and Women" are full of Indian culture; C215's graffiti art Every pair of eyes, some from the market hawkers, some passing girls, even the local goats and cats become his material; his art is "unexpected art", everyone can touch, also India The beauty of New Delhi is pushed to the world by the eyes of photographers and the pens of writers. Unlike the twisted words in New York, canned paints have been available everywhere since the early 1970s, and New York’s brick walls from the subway cars to the platforms and toilets are filled with the vivid colors painted by graffiti; these are Painting the site is also a rebellion. Nowadays, with the development of graffiti art, the simple twisting of text has more effects such as 3D and bubbles. Even with some paintings, it is still mainly text. The C215 from France is dominated by "characters". There is no violent factor. It is only from the eyes of the people in the painting, those uneasiness, loneliness, defense or innocence. This is the way he uses to write humanities; He began to extensively explore language, art history and history, so he could portray the expression of the characters so deeply. ...
