The capital of Thailand is famous for a whole heap of things, first things that come to mind, however, are the busy streets filled with vendors, shopping malls, markets, street food, nightlife and not forgetting the floating markets as well as the various religious monuments and temples spread across the city. However not many realise the artsy side of this ever so vibrant city. If you are after the art in Bangkok, then there is no better place than Yenak Art Villa to kick things off. Located in Sathorn, the gallery is a great place to be if you’re passionate about art. Book into a Sathorn hotel in Bangkok and begin exploring. The trendy art space is fully white washed allowing the paintings and sculptures to be the highlights. Most exhibitions are on display for almost a month. So if you’re staying at a nearby hotel like the Anantara Sathorn Bangkok Hotel, make sure to ask the information desk for more details.
It is, however, best to check with the gallery before visiting as at most times it is appointments only exhibition. However, there are few occasions where anyone can drop in and artists are often present to guide you through their work and help visitors grasp a better understanding of their work. Exhibitions are not only limited to paintings, there have been photography exhibitions in the past as well as sculptures are also put on display at this very chic modern gallery. The founders of the gallery intended to use this as a place where modernist creators can exhibit and showcase their talent. So if you are art savvy and in Bangkok, this is a place not to miss.
