Bangkok Art Scene
Nothing quite excites the emotions when it comes to the Artistic Creativity in Thailand
Outside the Art and Culture Centre in Bangkok
Bangkok's Burgeoning Artistry
The Bangkok Art Scene might not be one of the most famous art
hubs of the world but what it lacks in size and prestige, it more than
makes up for in vibrancy and thrusting modernity. A day out gallery
hopping is enough to get you around most of the private and commercial
galleries. While mostly promoting Thai artists, there's also several international artists displaying their works.
Though the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (opposite the MBK shopping mall) have made some progress towards integrating the city’s art experience, the best way for you to cover a much bigger and broader spectrum of art in Bangkok, is to simply jump around the maze-like inner city seeing a few different galleries.
Described as the beating pulse of the Thai art scene, the Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre is the first civic exhibition space in the city that integrates contemporary art pieces with traditional art, and helping push the boundaries of the country's cultural output.
Inside the Art and Culture Centre
The Bangkok Art Scene
La Lanta Fine Art is located in Sukhumvit 31, one of Bangkok’s most affluent districts. Roughly translated, Lalanta means beauty in abundance – a bold claim which the gallery satisfies by exhibiting contemporary works by internationally acclaimed artists from the United Kingdom, the USA, Australia, Argentina, China, Vietnam, Denmark, Japan, Israel and that of Thailand too.
The 100 Tonson Art Gallery is a fantastic private gallery space, covering 100 square meters, and aiming to promote contemporary art from some of Thailand’s brightest hopes. Paintings, sculptures, photographs and installations from both Thai and international artists co-exist with new media and conceptual pieces.
The Chulalongkorn Art Centre is regarded as the most
progressive university gallery in the city and has attracted the
country’s most cutting-edge artists, as well as top international
talent. The centre’s approach is both experimental and traditional,
offering a place for artists to explore multi-disciplinary methods.
Gallery F Stop
was opened as part of the excellent vegetarian restaurant, The Tamarind
Café and has developed a reputation as the place to see photographic
exhibitions, ranging from monochrome to colour, analog to digital, fine
art as well as human interest documentary. It is well worth a visit
around dinner time!
Set in the former Royal Mint building, the National Gallery dates from the King Rama V’s reign and exhibits the work of classic Thai artists from the 17th Century onwards. This stunning building was inherited by the Department of Fine Arts in 1974, and includes a permanent exhibition of work done by King Rama VI himself, plus many traditional murals charting the city’s formative history.
The National Gallery also boasts some pioneering modern art from recent Thai artists on which influences from Western ideas such as impressionism and cubism is quite obvious. It is such an essential addition to your art tour of Bangkok.
