– Let’s be green instead.
This is a rework of one of my previous illustrations unmask.
So I have been through the Ramkamhaeng A-Link twice a day almost everyday for about a year now and just a couple of weeks ago noticed that this night market has randomly appeared. Due to laziness or rush I haven’t had a chance to nip down to check it out until today. It is called ‘ตลาดเอามันส์’ (Funtastic Market), yes I agree the name is a bit silly but strolling through the market I did catch a few interesting indy or retro stalls, as some would like to label them. There are lots of colorful and exciting products to choose from, ranging from clothes (ofcourse) to art prints and gadgets. I’d say if you are bored on an evening, nip down and have a look it is right at the Airport Link so definitely easy to get to as well.
Oh! Did I mention a red wagon? Not all have disappeared, they have been moved away from the pathways of soi 11 thats all.
Phra Khanong BTS station may possibly be my new favorite spot. The W-District is this new art space (quite well laid out I might add) with some very exciting beautiful contemporary work. Some of the paintings on the ground floor really blew my mind and it has been a while since I have seen good art. This may be because I haven’t been active enough to go see art in Bangkok but the little that I have seen have not impressed me as much as the 3 artists, who had their work displayed here.
Dunkwen did some incredible exciting paintings that were quite abstract but had very strong substance to it. My personal favorite is the naked vulnerable looking girl sitting in that roaring mouth.

This painting by Tantikorn Nonkong is rather detailed and the emotions portrayed in each element is really powerful. I found this piece subtly daring and adored it extremely.
If you have not been I suggest you head out as it also has good street food in a very hipster artsy ambiance. Something I really enjoyed while the sun was setting since it formed this beautiful light transformation on the art work surrounding us. Very playful and “cute” as I usually call places. Definitely one of the more exciting places to hang out in Bangkok.
