‘I basically have very little background in arts; however, I am really passionate about street arts. Variety of fabulous pieces of work in different places I saw has inspired me to do what I like. By linking my cultural background, Lao culture and tradition, street arts, at least it would potentially enlarge my perception, as well as others especially people back home, that the old traditions and the modern one can be mixed harmoniously.’ — Sungkey Chalernkhun
