Panel 1 from the "Lost in the City" series - These paintings document practically every vignette that makes up present-day Bangkok--from drunken men asleep in front of a temple to protesters at Democracy Monument. Each painting is fronted by a Bangkok-style curb. Here a smashed plastic cup and dog droppings are on the curb.

Everything is themed around the artist, Navin Rawanchaikul. Even the ubiquitous rumpled newspaper sitting on a chair is a copy of The Navinist.

If you have not seen it yet, Bangkok Art Map or BAM (from Talisman Media) is a much needed guide to Bangkok's burgeoning art scene. It has all the latest on local galleries such as Manit Sriwanichpoom's Kathmandu Photo Gallery and the always interesting Tang Gallery. BAM does not seem to have a website, but can found in most galleries around town.
