Whether it is photography, painting or art installation, YenakArt Villa is especially designed for the trending artists. Nestled in Bangkok, the villa has a simple structure of well maintained concrete ground and whitewashed walls. On both walls and the ground, space is dedicated to innovative exhibits.
Simplicity and minimalism are the core architectural features of the building. Its architecture is said to have been inspired by the European architecture of 1930. An exhibition is usually held for a period of one month. You can enter the gallery at pre-arranged times, and can also have your exhibition as an open house session, across the 600-sq-metre garden.
If you are a connoisseur, you can make use of this moment to talk to the artist. Located on Yen Akart Road, the gallery is not hard to find. When you are closer to the gallery, you will be able to find if you look out for signposts of Yek Akart Road Soi 2. A close-by landmark is Anantara Sathorn Bangkok Hotel, located within a 11-minute drive away.
If you are making an appointment, the gallery is open from 2 to 7 pm. Once an appointment is fixed, book a Sathorn leisure hotel so that you can explore the villa conveniently. The villa is the meeting point of a large number of art fans, artists, journalists, businessmen, critics and collectors. You can visit the artists’ facebook fan pages too. Take time to walk through the artworks and understand what the artists try to express. You can also indulge in Thai food and wine. This modern art gallery hosts private events such as food tasting ceremonies, launchings, dinners and cocktails.
The gallery focuses on modernist styles in a wide range of media. The exhibitions to date include Olga Volodina’s photography, Pierre Bonnefille’s abstract canvases, Maitree Siriboon’s installations and photography.
