Hua Hin’s Own Banksy, Khun Joe, Raises Funds for Food Charity

Date:

Hua Hin’s own version of Banksy, local artist Khun Joe, collaborated with The Museum at Centara to host a fundraising event in support of SOS, Scholars of Sustenance, a charitable organization dedicated to addressing food insecurity in Thailand. The event featured a charity auction showcasing artworks painted by the iconic Khun Joe, which garnered an impressive sum of over 80,000 baht.

Khun Joe’s art has become a staple of the Hua Hin landscape, gracing various public spaces throughout the town. With over a decade of experience in the art world, Khun Joe is renowned for his street art, which has garnered widespread recognition and appreciation from locals and visitors alike. While his work may sometimes push the boundaries of official tolerance, it undeniably adds vibrancy and intrigue to the community.

The fundraiser not only showcased Khun Joe’s talent but also highlighted the urgent need to address food insecurity in Thailand. SOS, established in 2016, aims to minimize food waste and improve food equity by redistributing surplus food from businesses to communities in need across the country. With operations in Bangkok, Phuket, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, and beyond, SOS plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between food surplus and hunger.

The event drew attention not only to Khun Joe’s artistic contributions but also to the ongoing efforts of organizations like SOS to create a more equitable and sustainable food system in Thailand. The collaboration between local art and charitable endeavors serves as a testament to the power of community and creativity in addressing pressing social issues.
