On a quick trip to Bangkok (... see One Night In Bangkok blog), I managed to visit MOCA (the Museum Of Contemporary Art). Amazed and enthralled with the many Thai Art pieces on display, I spent close to five hours there (which did not seem adequate, especially if one is taking photos). Towards the end, my legs were cramped as I walked around without hardly taking a rest.

Posted here are the photos for you to enjoy.


The ground floor houses four halls, two halls for temporary displays and two halls for Thai national artists.

The Father of Thai Contemporary Art - Professor Silpa Bhirasri (Corrado Feroci).

The gift presented to HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn who presided over the opening of the museum on 23rd March 2012.

"The Emperoer"
- Bronze horse statue with detailed embossing by Roengsak Boonyawanichkul.

Not sure what this is, there was no title plaque. Size is about 3000 x 3000.

"Perfect Family"
- Bronze horse statues with detailed floral embossing by Roengsak Boonyawanichkul.

"Having Fun:

"Fighting Goats"
- Bronze statues : 400x1460x530 (1955).

These photos are posted for your enjoyment, if you like them experience it first hand and visit the museum. Nothing is like the real thing and bear in mind that photos don't show many of the details of the larger painting, etc.
