    Swiss inspiration

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 13/06/2018

    » Installation artist Arin Rungjaeng has created a sculpture formed by a thousand golden teardrops -- a symbol of the historical relations between Siam and Portugal -- and last year he unveiled a solemn bas relief that commented upon the military past of Thailand.

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 13/03/2018

    » Britain's dame of punk, Vivienne Westwood, is known for taking modern punk mainstream, but she is also outspoken on environmental issues. It is no surprise that her latest collection to drop in stores for spring summer 2018, Anglomania, draws most of its motifs from the concept of saving the world through sustainability and using less plastic.


    Strange visions of Bangkok

    Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 27/01/2018

    » Bob Stratton is one of the few people who actually like Bangkok’s tangle of electrical wires.


    Somewhere over the rainbow

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 28/07/2017

    » Even if you don't go with the fashion or art crowd, there's still a big chance that there is a Niagara of polka-dotted selfies all over your social media feed -- and this will probably continue until Sept 3.


    Inner peace, thread by thread

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 24/05/2017

    » Inside the intimate and cubic space of Nova Contemporary, a sense of serenity welcomes all visitors with monochromatic pictures of animals on the walls and clear plastic bunnies in the centre of the floor. The mild, seemingly plain artworks of animals on the walls don't beg to be photographed, but then again, pictures of them wouldn't do justice to the real thing anyway. They need to be seen up close through your own eyes.


    Where art is a luxury

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 17/01/2017

    » Ratchaprasong area's bastion of luxury retail, Gaysorn Shopping Centre, now joins the art plain with the opening of Duke Contemporary Art Space on the first floor. The small entrance can be misleading -- only upon entering do you realise that there is also a cigar bar and drinking hole enclaved within the art gallery.


    The looks of love

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 08/09/2016

    » It's a season of fashion exhibitions and every dreamy wild child's shoo-in favourite, Sretsis, also follows suit for autumn/winter 2016. The local superbrand won't be hosting a fashion show this fall -- they've opted instead to introduce their new collection in an exhibition that's nothing short of stunning.


    But first, let me take a selfie

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 20/01/2016

    » Narcissus, Chanel and lots of gold all make up this multidisciplinary show by Chris Bowden (or Beejoir). Using hand-printed linen, industrial pigmented inks and even real snakes, "#NRCSSM" is the British artist's first major solo exhibition in Thailand after having lived here as an artist and curator for the past 15 years. Much of the inspiration for the show comes from our nation's very own shutterbugs, where vanity in the digital age means easily taking 3,000 selfies -- and seeing nothing wrong with it. 


    Kafka on our shore

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 04/11/2015

    » Franz Kafka in Thailand -- does that sound irrelevant, or is it very timely?


    An adventure with Mamuang

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 09/09/2015

    » The brand new Bangkok Citycity Gallery now has Thailand's most-loved illustrated darling, Mamuang, to mark its inception in the art arena. The day Wisut Ponnimit's work will be shown full-scale in Thailand has arrived at last -- and judging by the artist's "yeah-whatever-don't-make-life-complicated" mindset, you'd better pop in to see it before the exhibition ends in early October. The opportunity to see his mango-shaped little girl -- this time in the form of a choose-your-own-adventure maze, is possibly harder than trying to find Maroon 5 tickets, thanks to Wisut's constant tsunami of work for magazines, product endorsements and countless corporations.
