The Toot Yung gallery is proud to present as the first of its kind, “Nomad Project” tagged with a social conscience. A solo exhibition and block party presenting recent works by Dutch artist Daan Botlek in association with Hub Sai Dek, a nonprofit organization based in China town, dedicated to helping enrich the lives of homeless children in Bangkok.
Three spaces will host “INHABITED HYPERCUBE” an exploded solo exhibition of Daan Botlek’s latest works produced during his three-month residency in Bangkok. Large-scale paintings on canvas, posters, silkscreen prints, laser cut art objects will be scattered between Cho Why, The Food Court and El Chiringito. Street wall paintings by Botlek will link the three spaces.
In addition, street art meets street kids during the seven-day event, providing daily workshops for the children at Hub Sai Dek lead by DJ Marine Caillat and professional street artists Druide, Tueg, Toska, Thibaud Tcherchian, Jeff Ross and Jesus A.D. from Europe and the United States. The artists will be passing on the torch, teaching and mentoring the children on the essentials, codes, and skills of graffiti, street art and hip hop culture.
The multidisciplinary event will take place from Saturday the 14th to Sunday 22nd March 2015, linking different emerging cultural, art and social spaces in Soi Nana, Chinatown.

From 9 p.m. to midnight, patrons can dance to the minimal tech beats of DJ Marine Caillat, with visuals by VJ Gabriel Camelin, inspired by Botlek’s graphic works, scattered throughout the streets.
