Ludo in Bangkok

Street artist LUDO is bouncing about Asia at the moment and recently emailed over some images of his works in the streets of Bangkok… such a photogentic city.

Fun fact: Bangkok currently holds the Guinness record for having the longest name of a place. Apparently “Bangkok” is just the short version because the city’s ceremonial name is “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”

Street art murals for charity Depaul UK

A group of street artists have created murals in East London telling the stories of various young homeless people as part of a campaign for charity Depaul UK, created by Publicis in London.

Each artwork in the campaign focuses on the individual story of a young homeless person, with text giving an insight into the factors that led up to their situation included as part of the murals, which are on display in Dalston and Shoreditch.

The artists involved are Ben Slow, David Shillinglaw, Best Ever (mural shown above), Josh Jeavons, and Jim McElvaney, all of whom gave their time for free.

The artworks all feature a url – streetstories.org.uk – which leads viewers to a website where they can find out more information about the homeless people whose stories appear in the murals, as well as the artists. Visitors to the site can also buy limited edition prints of the artworks, signed by the artists, for £80, with 100% of the money raised going to Depaul UK. As each print is sold, a section of the digital wall featuring the artwork is ‘cleaned’.

Visit streetstories.org.uk to find out more, or depauluk.org for more on Depaul UK.
