The must-see art exhibition of the moment, the Hotel Art Fair Bangkok 2018 hosted by Farmgroup, is letting art people experience art in hotels.
The great exhibition has been happening for five consecutive years now – doing a great job of introducing new faces and supporting artists to international levels. The fifth Hotel Art Fair Bangkok is turning over 34 rooms across the six stories of the 137 Pillars Suites & Residences Bangkok, on Sukhumvit 39, into an art space under the ‘ART in THE SKY’ concept. The space creates the relaxing up-in-the-air urban sensation for art people to appreciate art masterpieces among close companies of artists. This year, the Hotel Art Fair Bangkok is expecting the attendance of over 30 leading galleries from, Thailand, Japan, China, Malaysia, and the Philippines. Art people and collectors across the country attend the fair in full stream, including Orawan Ingkhasit; Tanya Chearavanont; Chawin Athakravisunthorn; Vasu Virajsilp; Paul Sirisant; Jitsing Somboon; Nualtong and Pattreeda Prasarnthong; Taya Rogers; Thanachai Ujjin (aka Pod Moderndog); and the one and only graffiti talent – Alex Face.
Famous artists, such as Joan Cornellà Vázquez, are also featuring their works in the 5th Hotel Art Fair Bangkok. Through his outstanding works of dark and satirical humor towards the society, the Spanish illustrator is acknowledged worldwide among art collectors and appreciators.
Another outstanding talent from Tokyo is Manabu Koga – a Japanese underwater photographer. His works are well-known by their common nature of unique portrayal – a snap shot of a woman in her bikinis, for instance, is the hybrid of ideas of art, Japanese fashion, manga and cosplay.
Last but not least is Niam (Surachai) Mawornkanong, an acrylic painter who views art as a therapy. His exhibition last year, A place called Earth, was an example on how creating art was the only way he felt he was communicating with somebody, relieving the pain he was going through and connecting with the world again. Art for Mawornkanong, thus, became a therapy to help him out of his dark corner.
There are also other international works to see and experience in Hotel Art Fair Bangkok 2018 from many leading galleries and artists around the world.the Clear Gallery Tokyo, Japan; the G13 Gallery, Malaysia; Joan Cornellà, Spain; Peap Tarr & Lisa Mam, Cambodia; The Drawing Room, Philippines; WE Gallery, China
