and Apiradee Tantivejakul, project director of Central Group of Companies.
Pictory’s concept is simple. Take a photograph, a
painting or a mirror and frame it, but in a most tasteful way. It is a shop
for those who love to decorate their home and change the decor once in a
while at an affordable price.
The works exhibited at the opening were all done by
famous Thai and foreign artists: digital photographs, nature seen through
the eyes of an artist and captured for eternity or technically perfect
prints. Affordable prices mean you can purchase most of the framed
photographs for 1,300 baht and go home with an outstanding present for
yourself or another art/nature lover.
Manager Somsang Arsang, Art Roffel (Domi Duca), Prachurn Goonchorn (Home
Buyers Guide), and Gerard from the Netherlands.
Somsang said that most of the numbered prints are imported from the USA
and Europe, but framed in Bangkok. The colorful photos in the entrance
gallery for the opening night were all shot by Bangkok based artist
Jantraratt Adireksarn (Fon) whose subjects are anything regarding nature -
animals, clouds, trees, flowers, all in various colors and forms. The prints
and photos will be changed on a monthly basis with always one artist
exhibiting every month.
