Bangkok, 22 May, 2018 – The 137 Pillars Suites & Residences is hosting the 5th Hotel Art Fair Bangkok from 8 to 10 June 2018.
This year’s event will see some of the established and upcoming artists in Thailand and from overseas showcasing their works in the hotel’s 34 suites. In total, it is estimated that there will be roughly 500 pieces of artwork on display, and for sale, in the suites.
Some 32 galleries and artists, including well-known names such as Joan Cornellà from Spain, the g13 Gallery from Malaysia and WE Gallery from Shenzhen, China, as well as popular local artists such as Pomme Chan, Atty Tantivit and Viranod Buranasiri, will be taking part in the event.
Spanish cartoonist and illustrator Joan Cornellà is no stranger to Asia and has exhibited his work in the region on numerous occasions. He will showcase about 20 new pieces of art.
Ex-banker, Viranod Buranasiri will use the fair to showcase his colourful paintings which he describes as “abstract expressionism”. He will take over one suite entirely for his own work and plans to display about 35 new pieces.
The Hotel Art Fair Bangkok 2018 is open to the public on 9 and 10 June from 10.00-10.00 Hrs. It is by invitation only on 8 June. Admission is free.
Created by Farmgroup, a Bangkok–based creative and design consultancy, the Hotel Art Fair Bangkok is a platform for artists to reach more art lovers in a fun and warm location, rather than in a cold setting such as a convention centre.
In 2017 the event attracted 2,964 visitors, both Thai and foreigners, and even more are expected this year.
