    Beyond the ropes

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 19/10/2018

However, as you enter the venue on some nights, art isn't the only focus but a blindfolded woman hung in suspension with ropes. The ropes have been tied up by a rope artist and her model serves as a canvas for elaborate and intricate patterns.

This is shibari or the art of Japanese rope bondage. Enter at your own risk.

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/05/2018

    » It's all been there done that on the Cannes Lion advertising award circuit for Kantapon Metheekul. The young creative executive has won many awards, been featured in several publications and has illustrated for a handful of high street and luxury fashion brands -- but that's not his true calling. As someone who loved to draw since he was five, it was only natural that Kantapon's veins throbbed to become a full-time artist -- to draw his own creations and not what others briefed him to.
