About Bob

 

彼はボブ。ボブはナイスガイだ。

彼が誰によって書かれたかはわからないが
緩やかな曲線に2つの点から生まれたのがボブ。

ボブはネコとバナナと、バンコクの99のカフェ現れ
今も世界中もっと多くの場所に現れる計画をたてている・・・

そして今、HARIOのV60ドリッパーで淹れた
おいしいコーヒーを飲むあなたのもとに現れる時が来た!

Q. How did Bob become big in the Thailand market?

Start from the vision of BOB that believe in art improves people through understanding and becomes part of a lifestyle, with this belief leads every action of BOB.

Group of cafe people first saw BOB at specialty coffee cafes around Bangkok without knowing what BOB is, that is the starter conversation between them!

BOB is now working between fine art and lifestyle art, both way is a happy project through process, outcome and impact to audiences.

 

Q. Why did Bob invade Thailand coffee shops?

According to BOB’s vision, art in Thailand was difficult to access to, especially for artists to find a gallery to show their works.

BOB’s perspective to lifestyle place has a possibility to have art in theirs, BOB started searching coffee shop around Bangkok, discuss with owners, enjoy those stories how each shop had been made by individuals beliefs.

The heart of these people that BOB have the same is ‘passion’.
They started from there.
And that the place that BOB choose to invade!

More and more we search for those cafes, we met more and more lovely people!
From that time it was 2020, during the Covid-19 period, BOB invaded 99 passionate cafes around Bangkok, what BOB did is to support these cafes as well ! And BOB is the first artist that make those cafes space becomes new opportunities for them and for artists!
