BANGKOK (VNS)— A gallery specialising in the modern art of Thailand and Viet Nam will open in Bangkok today.
The BaBaBa Gallery, owned by Tina Vanichtheeranont, will display art, antiques and historic archives.
Vanichtheeranont first started collecting Vietnamese paintings 20 years ago. He now owns 2,000 pieces by renowned Vietnamese artists.
His valuable collection will be exhibited at the gallery.
For the last few years the Thai collector has organised several exhibitions in Bangkok to promote Vietnamese art. He has also brought leading Thai artists to Viet Nam to paint and hold exhibitions.
To celebrate the opening of the gallery, several paintings by artists of both countries will be put on display.
