Bangkok Sketchers: Sketching Bangkok

Bangkok Sketchers
November 22, 2014
Cassia Gallery
Sukhumvit 31, Bangkok, Thailand

An exhhibition with the Bangkok Sketchers at Cassia Gallery ca never be a bore. There were so many things going on aside from the main exhibition inside the gallery. There were people selling artworks outside, an ensemble of a cello and two flutes, people talking and eating outside as setup, and people just having fun waiting for the main event.

As soon as the ribbon was cut by Thanpuying Vilavan Viranuvati, whom we call Aunty at the same time, and the honors and respects where given to Khun Vara-Poj and Khun Pasherin Snidvongs, the gallery was opened. Artist from the Bangkok Sketchers hanged their sketches on the gallery walls and it was just so much joy.

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.
