IN THE LIME LIGHT
The Indigo Pearl Phuket resort was the venue for a unique art exhibition called FACE, short for fashion, art, cuisine and entertainment. The event, held in the resort's Rivet restaurant, had all that and more. Hosts Prakaikaew Na-Ranong, deputy managing director at Indigo Pearl, and Kelly Lewis, the resort's jovial general manager, greeted guests who began arriving in the early evening at a reception in the restaurant's courtyard, which had been set up as an exhibition area. The courtyard was bordered with large canvases by award-winning Lebanese designer and artist Pierre Koukjian. Growing up in Germany, France and the Middle East, Koukjian came to the arts through jewellery making. He discovered that painting, sculpture and jewellery are all complementary art forms.
The FACE exhibition displayed some works from his latest series "Impressive People", featuring a pop-art influenced style whose subjects include some of the world's leading public figures and politicians, such as Kim Jong-un and the Dalai Lama.
