Pride Month to be marked with art
To mark Pride Month, Pulse Social Enterprise is holding "Pulse Chroma 2022 -- Art Exhibition Celebrating Diversity, Inclusivity And Social Well-being", which kicks off today and runs until Aug 31 at five galleries in Bangkok.
This gallery-hopping exhibition aims to present social diversity, including gender, sex, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs and other ideologies that blend together, creating beautiful dimensions in society, like an image full of colours that pleases our mind.
On display are more than 100 colourful and creative art pieces of various types including photographs, digital and fine arts, and light installations by emerging and well-known Thai and international artists.
They include photos by Surachai "Pui" Saengsuwan, paintings by Oat Montien, ceramic sculptures by Wasinburee "Tew" Supanichvoraparch, and digital artwork by Ana Marie Pido from the Philippines.
