Capor's "Aging" at White Space and "Yum-Sam-Sa-Hai" at Art Gorillas Art Gallery.

Thai Art Scene  March 15, 2009We met a messy hair artist with his smoke-painted works about sex and nature, a mini art market without shopper, a mini gallery which was closed without any notifications, a painting by one of the royal family contain her favourite things, an exhibition by graduates in art university which had only one new media art for thesis, a foreigner's art exhibition in a contemporary thai house, a painful history of the art center of the city, a free style art thesis exhibition in many glass window rooms and path walls, a one room gallery with mini souvenir shop and 3 artists exhibited in the same room unrelatedly.
