As I understand it this is the Korat Forum for the Arts so here is an arty post.  I saw the article in the Guardian today and the Bruegel stuff looks pretty good.  The town Centre scene shows that the Europeans are no slouches when it comes to causing mayhem on a Saturday night.  This scene has the same sort of feel as a Hogarth print (Gin Lane).  The winter scene has stick figures just like a Lowry painting.
I will have to see if I can find some prints to decorate the TT household.

You might be lucky to get some prints  There are about 40 authenticated surviving paintings, one third of which are in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.  i suggest keep working for a while  ;)  fantastic detail in the pics, of the great unwashed as you say

This person thought shredding their £40,000 Banksy print would make it double in value - it went completely wrong

In a stunt that has now become internationally famous, on Friday 5 October, Banksy's 'Girl With A Balloon' self destructed right after it was sold for more than £1m at auction at Sotheby's.

Messages in their art

 From comments on sex workers to those who toil in the fashion industry and polka-dotted pumpkin balloons, the Bangkok Art Biennale has something for everyone

THE CREATIVE skills of 75 international and local will be bringing a special shine to the city this season as the inaugural Bangkok Art Biennale (BAB), which kicked off yesterday, swings into gear. More than 200 art pieces can be admired at 20 venues ranging from riverside temples, historical buildings to malls, hotels and galleries over the next three-and-a-half months.

Continuing until February 3, both big names and emerging artists explore diverse platforms on the festival’s theme “Beyond Bliss” – a paradox to the world we live in. Here are just some of the works awaiting a visit from art enthusiasts.

Suspended from the atrium’s ceiling at CentralWorld are 14 giant red-and-white polka-dotted pumpkin balloons by Yayoi Kusama – the eccentric grande dame of optical illusions. It’s the same collection that was displayed last year at Ginza Six complex in Tokyo. At nearby Siam Paragon, her admirers can share in her hallucination with dots, pumpkins and meshes of netting through two fibreglass sculptures “I Carry On Living with the Pumpkins”.

Celebrated South Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa brings in his best-known inflatable sculptures and site-specific installations fashioned from mass-produced products that are playful yet satirical. His gigantic black inflatable robot that keeps falling down despite trying to get up is on view at Central Embassy in a criticism of the powerlessness of men in this frustrating world.

His large inflatable metallic pink pig with moving wings at Siam Center would really like to fly but never gets off the ground. Meanwhile, at the Bangkok and Culture Centre (BACC), Jeong Hwa creates a plastic jungle fashioned from the suspended vines of more than 10,000 colourful plastic baskets and invites visitors to walk through vessels that sway as they are passed in a comment on mass-consumerism.

Like her 2015 audience-participation project in Sydney, veteran performing artist Marina Abramovic invites visitors to participate in some long durational activities such as counting rice grains to examine the limits of the body, the possibilities of the mind and the being of the present time.

There are some protocols to follow before joining the activities at BACC until November 11. All electronic devices and belongings must be stored in lockers and Abramovic’s assistants – they’re referred to as facilitators – will direct a series of preparatory exercises that need to be undertaken before proceeding, such as breathing and blocking and physical squats. Noise-cancelling headphones must be worn at all times and no one is allowed to speak.
