  • [GALLERY] 9 Thai street artists reinvent a classic logo for the 21st century

Nine Thai street artists have teamed up with Johnnie Walker to reinvent the Scotch whiskey brand’s iconic “walking man” logo. Under the campaign slogan #WEWILLKEEPWALKING, artists including Jayato, DEA. 1, Dale, Joker, October 29, Erth, Klone, Benzilla and Nev3R each put their own unique spin on the logo

Some of their work was even captured in a music video called “Unity” by hip-hop artist DaBoyWay (see below). Here’s a look at each collaborator and their artwork.

JAYOTO (Utit Prokum, 26)

Graphic designer, painter, illustrator and street artist, Jayoto studied mathematical sciences before deciding to pursue his passion for art at university.

Location: the building next to Big C, Rama 4 Rd.

 

DEA. 1 (Kijja Yamunsabidin, 38)

A street artist since 1996, he started with the tag name DEAONE, and even collaborated with Converse for their 100-year anniversary on graffiti designs in collaboration with telecoms company DTAC.

Location: Ekamai Store, Sukhumvit Rd. BTS Ekamai

October 29 (Takrit Krutphum, 30)

October 29’s graffiti ethos is to make people smile, and works hard to make sure anyone can read meaning into his work.

One of the few female artists in Bangkok’s street art scene, Erth takes inspiration from her favorite cartoons and horror films.

Yorch’s art-light installation of a handshake surrounded by neon lights in the colors of Thailand’s flag colours appears in DaBoyWay’s music video “Unity.” The installation itself is a collaborative work between vocational college graduates.
