Hotel Art Fair Bangkok 2018

09/06/18 – 10/06/18

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 centre.
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 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.and is free of charge to visit.

To have 32 galleries and artists displaying their creative genius under one roof is such a great idea. To be able to see artwork from famous and upcoming artists, both local and from overseas, all in one place means that art lovers and prospective buyers can park their cars downstairs, enjoy a nice leisurely lunch, study the art they like, meet the artist or gallery owner and even have a relaxing massage once they've finished without even leaving the building! I have heard of quite a lot of the artists that will take part and I am really looking forward to meeting them in person. I'm also hoping to pick up a bargain or two to take home!"
