Siam Art

Honestly, I had difficulty finding decent painting and art materials at a very low price. Buying from Siam paragon B2S is a convenient option in which everybody would hesitantly take. Knowing where to buy these art products is important in order for one to save a lot of baht here in Thailand. Most art stores are selling art materials expensive as they should be, well we are to away from the real sources.

Buying online is also a real option. Browsing the world wide web can give you different sites to purchase from and having these materials sent over from anywhere in the world is not a difficulty anymore.

To make shopping for art materials easier and with reasonable price for professional materials and really cheap student art materials, I introduce to you Siam Art . Siam Art is located in Old Siam Center. In this shopping center you can buy just anything you need and finding Siam Art is going take a little bit of a chore since you have to go through a lot of small booths and stalls on the first floor just like a football player.

Khun Chaiwat Jirapattapong started the store in 1998. Back then, he even had art lessons going on in his small store post. He was visited by great Thai artists and even international artists based in Bangkok, Chiangmai, and from other neighboring cities near Bangkok.

I have been into his shop many times and I always get good materials that are difficult to find here in Bangkok.

Today, we had a great conversation about how he started the business back then. I invite you find his shop and take some of the art materials that are fun to use in different art activities. Personally I bought stretched canvas in different sizes from his shop, KOH-I-NOOR pencils with different capabilities, and many more painting materials that are essential to your studio.

Hope you will find what you need to visually portray your ideas and thoughts about this wonderful world around us.








Ali Bernie Buga-y has been a teacher in arts and music to different international schools in Thailand for nine years until he decided to enjoy the full time lifestyle of being a visual artist. Together with his family, he travels to different national parks in Thailand to experience true encounters in nature and the wildlife. His love for the birds and animals is the driving force that motivates him to photograph and paint them as seen in the wild. The joys of birding can only be shared through visual representations of these lovely feathered creatures carefully studied and observed in their natural habitat. As a graduate of Theology, he perfectly understands that somehow man should find ways to emerge himself to an edenic experience here on earth; and through these physical experiences man may again find spirituality beholding nature. Complicated as it may seem, Bernie finds it refreshing to the mind and soul as nature reveals itself when he observes and study them carefully through photography.
