Street art and graffiti in Chiang Mai, Thailand

You just know I had to spend a day graffiti hunting. DERP.
As you can see, I found a lot of work which seems to be done by the same few artists. Found multiple pieces by “wisdom” and “crazy cat” and the artist whose symbol looks like a backwards B.
Who knew Chiang Mai was the place to find awesome street art? Not me!

I hope you all appreciate this because this graffiti hunt excursion cost me my good health! After 5 hours in 40 degree heat, walking kilometre after kilometre, sweating my bollocks off, I had a little dehydration spell in a pub. Barmaids had to fetch me tiger balm and cold compresses whilst I ralphed in their loos, then kinda collapsed on their sofas in between downing as much water as possible. I was okay after a bit, but I finally succumbed to the lure of Gatorade (never had the stuff before, don’t really subscribe to it) just to replenish my lost salts and electrolytes.

Stupid useless body.

But at least my photos turned out great!

Oh and I’m fine now, fanks for asking.

    You suffered for your art – but it was worth it. I’ve been to Chiang Mai and the heat can certainly get to you!
