Graffiti battles and more kick off this weekend. 

As part of Bangkok Design Week, Phra Khanong's W-District will transform into a creative market from Jan 27-Feb 4

From 11am to 10pm daily, the event under the name "Light up a Life" will pack together a market, art and music, graffiti battles and workshops.

In the creative market you can find pop-up shops with street art, local and international graffiti art and creative food.

One of the major highlights is the Spraybrush Urban Art Exhibition at HOF art space, a group exhibition showcasing 20 selected Thai street and graffiti artists.

Alongside this, the likes of Russian graffiti artist Wais One and several local graffiti artists will give live demonstrations.

Running on Jan 28 and Feb 3-4, a graffiti battle will see artists selected on the day given 90-minutes to complete a black and white artwork without any preliminary sketching or drawing.   

Music and entertainment comes from party organizers and DJs such as Pai, Kratewiz, Sabai Sabai Radio and Quay Records.
