You Can See Heroes: Working class move from shadow to gallery wall

If you’re bored of Americans running around in ridiculous costumes saving the world from robots and commie-nazi aliens, check out the real thing at the Subhashok the Arts Centre.

Artist Surapong Sutat Na Ayutthaya represents Thailand’s blue collar workers as the subjects of “Hero” opening Thursday.

Portrayed in Chinese inks as the real champions of our society, Surapong depicts laborers and the working class.

“A hero is not determined by a uniform, social status or one’s state of origin, but the capacity to overcome any obstacle that comes their way – that’s a true hero,” he said.

The opening exhibition begins at 6pm on Thursday, and the exhibition will run through June 30.
