Siam Scrawlings.

Across the skytrain tracks from the glittering towers of the Siam Paragon Shopping Centre are a network of dingy alleys. These thin pedestrian roads are packed with tiny shops, which range from stands selling $5 t-shirts, to closet-sized boutiques stocking work by local designers. The area is very popular with hip Thai youth, and really is a great place to look out for new clothes. It's also a good place to look out for street art. Perhaps because the area sort of markets itself as being counter-culture (which, I guess, it almost is, if compared to the places across the street), most available walls and shutters are covered with the work of local street-artists.
