Street Art in Chiang Mai

Recording the Outdoor Artistry of the City

Variations on the crossed arm robot can be seen all over Chiang Mai. I like him / her!

This is very much an image based post to showcase some of the street art we saw during our few months in the northern city of Chiang Mai in Thailand.  I never went out of my way to find pieces to capture but they always caught my eye when I did see them so I started to take photos…

Little Red Riding Hood Chiang MaiThe first few here are from places within the old city walls.  These next ones only show a part of a much larger piece but I was unable to capture it due to the narrowness of the alleyways and my lens not being wide enough.

The ‘Read Me’ Collection at  Kad Suan Kaew Shopping Centre

It was when I saw this next collection at the back of the shopping complex that I decided I would make a little post out of my photos.  I had been shopping on my bike and was looking for a way out when I came across these, I think they were mostly done for the CNX Read Me tour which was a campaign to promote reading.
