In 2016, BUKRUK Urban Arts Festival , with the support of the European Union, Shangri-La Hotel, Jet Airways, TAT and SCB, brought in artists from around the world for a 10-day celebration of public wall paintings, art exhibitions, artist talks, animation and music. Founded by Myrtille Tibayrenc of Toot Yung Art Center and Nicolas Dali of Kuoz, the festival stretched from Samphanthawong down to Bangrak. Wall paintings range from massive eye-catching concepts such as that of Daan Botlek at Sathon Pier to smaller intimate detailed drawings like Daehyun Kim’s in Charoenkrung Soi 28. The styles are varied and the colors mood altering. A stroll down Charoenkrung Soi 32 exposes one to the expressions of Kult, Lolay, and special guests. The festival has spurred continual interest from artists, embassies, and hotels wishing to contribute more street art of their own. Mexican and Portuguese artists have since joined the original 13 nationalities represented at BUKRUK.
