Lines From Three Lives

Date : 08 April - 29 May 2016
Location: Studio, 4th floor

These three people are not professionally known for their sketches. Their sketches are what they do in their spare time or when travelling. Chuan Leekpai has been drawing sketches for more than 50 years. He was often invited to exhibit his works in various shows. Out of the exhibitions he participated with some architects, gave rise to the discussion and sharing for the love of sketching with the architect, Nithi Sthapitanonda. They met up with Chakrabhand Posayakrit, the renowned National Artist who also has sketches from his travels, and so he was asked and was delighted to join the exhibition.
 
The organisers would like to thank Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Department of Cultural Promotion, Ministry of Culture, and all the companies and organisations who helped making this exhibition possible.
