A street muralist who famously plastered the face of a deputy junta leader onto a watch a few years ago will curate a month-long event of works by more than 30 artists opposed to Thailand’s persistent dictatorship. 

Headache Stencil announced today that he will organize Uncensored, which will showcase works by over a dozen artists – well- and lesser-known alike – that protest the military-backed government. 

Among them are Suchart Sawatsi, who recently lost his vaunted national artist title for supporting the pro-democracy movement, photographer-filmmaker Chardchakaj Waikawee and Nakrob Moonmanas, who puts a creative spin on digital collages. Others include street artists October 29, Muebon and Rukkit.

The artist, who rose to fame with anti-establishment murals around Bangkok, has listed all the participating artists.

Admission will be free. The event will run from 10am until 4pm, Saturday through Nov. 22 at the Jam Factory. The riverside art space is located on Charoen Nakhon Road in Bangkok’s Khlong San district, a short walk from BTS Khlong San or the Khlong San Pier.
