covid19 Thai art project

I'm Roberto, an illustrator, from Brazil, living in Brisbane and selling some special art pieces for a cause close to my heart.

 

Thailand is a second home for my partner Vickie and I, having lived there to train and compete in our sport, Muay Thai. We fell in love with the people, the food, the way of life, and made some wonderful friends too.

It broke our hearts when we read that the suicide rate has skyrocketed in the past weeks, and that people are literally starving, with practically zero help from the government.

So we quickly rallied together with 3 of our good friends in Thailand (Mary, Frances and Sandy), and using my art skills, and their networks, we're now able to give directly to people who need help now. (You can read about each of us at the bottom of this page).

"I've created affordable artwork inspired by the beautiful people of Thailand, to contribute to those most vulnerable in these difficult times."

Product Details

Walk along any Bangkok street and you'll come across a huddle of Tuk Tuk drivers....some of them are sleeping on the back seat, others are eagerly smiling and saying 'hello sir' in the hope you'll want them to drive you somewhere.

These guys work hard for their money, but do it with a smile....and it's a part of Thai travel you don't want to miss.

Where will you end up? Probably exactly where you ask to go! How will you get there? Well that's the fun bit... The adventure! Warm air in the open-sided chariot, and possibly some random Thai pop music blaring, dodging in and out of traffic, down back streets and alleys that 'can't possibly be the right direction' but then before you know it, there you are!

This is one of my favourite Thai urban adventures.

Some articles about the situation in Thailand

Suicide Rate Spikes

As a coronavirus lockdown devastates Thailand's economy, more people are taking their own lives.

Little to No Support

Millions of Thais left out of government's Covid-19 cash relief scheme.

Inequality Worsened

Many Thais were already economically marginalised before the outbreak. Without urgent action, they will fall deeper into poverty.
