TRAVEL PICS-LOCAL ART GALLERY IN PHUKET

I love oil paintings and while I can't afford Renoir, Monet,Van Gogh or Tyeb Mehtas of the world I do love to put up artwork in my house.The whole experience becomes all the more exciting when you see a local  artist paint,interact with them and see how they approach a particular painting.

A beautiful artwork can become a truly memorable souvenir of a wonderful trip.
One of the must buy item on my wish list on my latest trip was to buy an oil painting (Yes ladies believe it or not , I did sacrifice my makeup purchase wish list of NARS The Multiple,MAC Semi Precious lipstick & Dior Addict lipstick for this!).





I saw some amazing artwork in small Galleries in Chatuchak market in Bangkok & local Art Galleries in Phuket.Many of the Artists were making reproductions but I also saw some very brilliant original artwork (price running in hundreds of thousand $$$ ! Gulp way beyond my budget!)

So I wanted to share some of the unique sights from my trip. I'll be posting a few more posts from my trip,leave a comment behind if you'd like to read more of my travel related posts

    1. The saddest journey in the world is the one that follows a precise itinerary. Then you're not a traveler. You're a f@@king tourist.
