Out there in the night of a thousand crimes people were dying, being maimed, cut by flying glass, crushed against steering wheels or under heavy car tires. People were being beaten, robbed, strangled, raped and murdered. People were hungry, sick, bored, desperate with loneliness or remorse or fear, angry, cruel, feverish, shaken by sobs. A city no worse than others, a city rich and vigorous and full of pride, a city lost and beaten and full of emptiness.
The beat goes on...

James A. Newman is now officially part of the Bangkok Night with this portrait by American expressionist Chris Coles.
A former Hollywood producer Chris Coles has been painting in Bangkok for many years. His work has been shown all across the world and is part of emerging, and major private collections.
His excellent book Navigating the Bangkok Noir is avaiable here...Navigating the Bangkok Noir

The artist is Newman's personal favourite contemporary living artist working in the region, so it is a thrill for him to see this portrait.
The beat continues,
