Matoom Art Space – Chaing Mai, Thailand

In the midst of all the open markets and scooter filled streets in Chaing Mai, TAE discovered the perfect art space. Each item was created specifically for this gallery by artist Chumpol Taksapornchai “Tuw” and his close artist friends. Unlike other galleries in the area, Tuw was there to greet us as we arrived.  He was very excited to have TAE visit and tour the gorgeous space.

Bright, colorful, and inviting, this space was filled with amazing energy in paintings, sculptures, greeting cards and more.

Below is a piece that was featured at an art show in Tokyo Japan earlier this year.

Many of the paintings were created on rice paper with mixed mediums. I observed texture to be an overall theme for his art.

This colorful metal sculpture – Music Box is a TAE favorite at this art space.
