Contemporary Korean artist Jae Yong-kim has turned Central Embassy into "A Glazing Gallery" featuring thousands of doughnut decorations, until Aug 31.

This is the first collaboration between the luxury shopping mall and the 51-year-old artist who offers a new dimension of food art, blending magical food designs with creativity.

Renowned for his captivating ceramic sculptures of doughnuts which are often colourfully painted and embellished with glitter and Swarovski crystals, Jae Yong-kim has adorned the walls and ceiling of Central Embassy and Central Chidlom linkage tunnel on Level 2 with three-dimensional doughnut sculptures designed to tantalise our senses and whet our appetite for a special meal.

Called "Sweet Bangkok Donuts", the spectacular tunnel is a vibrant attraction for everyone to visit, take photos and check in until the end of August.

Meanwhile, visitors are also invited to discover the story behind the artist's doughnut creation at the "Jae Yong Kim Exhibition" which showcases 120 hand-crafted ceramic doughnuts from his "Donut Fear" series, at The Balcony on Level 2, until July 31.

These creations are unique as they convey stories of various international cultures, including the memories and power of Thai scenery and culture portrayed through the lines and colours.

Also, this is a chance for people to unleash their creativity and create doughnuts in the "Ceramic Donut Weekend Workshop by A Clay Ceramic" and taste special recipes inspired by the artist's work at the "Jae Yong Kim Donut Café x Drop by Dough" pop-up.
