Here you'll find a selection of the Thai Art Galleries I visited while on vacation in Phuket. I shall endeavour to keep you updated when I become aware that there may be something new and exciting about to happen on the art scene.
you know of any other interesting or unusual galleries around the
country that you believe may be of importance, I'd love to hear about them. Please feel free to
let me know and I could easily add your findings right here, for the rest
of the world to see and share.
Art Rendezvous Gallery, located at 69 Yaowarat Road in the heart of Phuket City, first opened its doors in December 2007 and is owned by a Frenchman named Patrick Bois who has lived in Thailand for many years.
This very special and intimate gallery exhibits many unique artworks by some of Thailand's most promising local talent as well as many foreigners living in the country. This gallery is open daily from 12.00 am until 9.00 pm.
D Gallery at 63/501, Moo 2, Thepkrasattri Road, Koh Kaew Muang in Phuket is a big beautiful and bright, modern gallery located in the luxury Royal Phuket Marina overlooking the tranquil Phang Nga Bay.
The gallery is a short 10-minute drive in a north-easterly direction from Phuket Town and exhibits exquisite contemporary artworks by some of the most enterprising and established artists from around South East Asia with most artists principally from Thailand and Vietnam.
The Soul of Asia Art Gallery, located at 37, 39 Ratsada Road, Taladyai, Muang in the centre of Phuket Town, is the brainchild of Dutchman Eric Smulders, who has converted two old Chinese shop-houses into a magnificent gallery with more than 700m2 of master paintings and antiques from around Asia.
Chinese antique rugs, Chinese antique furniture and exquisite Chinese porcelain are also on offer as well as a special collection of Chagall, Dali, Picasso and Warhol, the owner's choice artists. There are other branches at the Surin Plaza, the JW Marriott Resort and Spa and also the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort.
