Some of Thailand’s most established and upcoming artists are set to take over six floors of suites at the luxurious 137 Pillars Suites & Residences on Sukhumvit Soi 39 in the heart of Bangkok from 8-10 June 2018.
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 local artists such as Pomme Chan, Atty Tantivit, and Viranod Buranasiri, will completely take over 34 suites to showcase, and sell, as much of their work as they can.
The Hotel Art Fair Bangkok (HAFB), now in its 5th year, is a clever initiative that was created for artists to reach more art lovers in a fun and warm location, rather than in a cold setting such as a convention center.
In total, it is estimated that there will be roughly 500 pieces or artwork on display in the suites over the 3-day event.
And it’s not just Thailand’s artists that will showcase their art during the fair, some artists are flying in from overseas. 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.
The event will be by invitation only on 8 June but opens up to the public on 9 and 10 June from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. And is free of charge to visit.
Entry, as always, is free.
