Bangkok Art

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 are also several international artists displaying their works.

The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (opposite the MBK shopping mall) may have made progress towards integrating the city's art experience. Still, the best way to cover a much broader spectrum of art in Bangkok is to jump around the maze-like inner-city viewing as many different galleries as you can.

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.

Bangkok Art Galleries

La Lanta Fine Art is 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.

Modern, contemporary and ancient forms of art have attracted collectors and admirers to Bangkok because of its abundance. On this art tour, you'll get the chance to dive deeper into the Bangkok art scene and tour the most recognisable places, displaying the more exceptional artworks in their full glory.

The Chulalongkorn Art Centre has become regarded as the most progressive university gallery in the city. It has attracted the country’s most cutting-edge artists, as well as a 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, analogue to digital, fine art as well as human interest documentary. It is well worth a visit at 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. It included 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 apparent. It is such an essential addition to your art tour of Bangkok.
