Nern Chalet, Hua Hin, July 7, 2018 – TAT Regional Director of Prachuap Kirikhan, Orasa Awutkom unveils new artwork from 13 international artists at the conclusion of The First Hua Hin International Contemporary Art Residency Program at Nern Chalet Beachfront Hotel, Hua Hin.

 

The first Hua Hin International Contemporary Art Residency Program brought together 13 internationally known artists to Hua Hin for a month to create new artwork. Invited artists are Michael John Bell, Stephen Anthony Bird, and Ruth Li from Australia; Marc Janssens from Belgium; Sanket Viramgami from India; Monika Grycko from Italy; Hideyuki Katsumato from Japan, Epjey Pacheco from the Philippines; Anna Maria Couderc from Spain; Do Hiep, and Pham Huy Thong from Vietnam; Jesse Standlea from USA, and Vasan Sithikett from Thailand. At the conclusion of the program, all of these artists are now ready to showcase their work.

 

TAT Regional Director of Prachuap Kirikhan, Orasa Awutkom says “Art created by imagination, thoughts, environment, beauty, emotion, and experiences are expressed visually through colors, techniques, and brushstrokes. Some artists choose to express their ideas through sculpturing. Being in Hua Hin provides international artists with a new platform of ideas, I’m so pleased to see such fantastic work resulting from their stay”.

 

Naidee Changmor, the local artist who brought this idea to life added, “With the international artists here, we are able to exchange ideas and learn something new and everything we learned during the process was captured in the new artwork.
