BNE Graffiti in Bangkok

Here’s an interview with the man who claims to be behind the BNE graffiti and stickers.  See http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/09/nyregion/09bne.html. They are common in Bangkok.

I suspect there may be many copycats who use the same initials in their tags.

I have posted some photos of BNE in Bangkok to Flickr.

Most BNEs in Bangkok are stickers. Surprisingly I did not post any to Flickr but there is a group for all BNE graffiti that has many examples: http://www.flickr.com/groups/bne/

Here’s one good one:

I don’t know if I am doing this attribution thing correctly. I searched Flickr for BNE graffiti in Bangkok with a Creative Commons license. This very nice picture taken with a fish eye lens has an Attribution license. I think I am correct in posting the two links above. But please don’t arrest me if I misunderstood: “I’ll correct it officer!”
