SPECIAL ART BY K’WISHULADA ARTIST
A new landmark that everyone must visit is the ART ROOM, designed by artist Khun Wishulada. Enter rooms of imagination through the concept of Trash To Treasure Art, which transformed the room into a space of imagination made from waste materials. And in order to welcome the Christmas and New Year festivities, all areas were lit up with twinkling lights and decorated with the beauty of the materials and where the lights delivered excitement and happiness to people all over the world. But did you know….in every festival, we use up an enormous amount of resources and at the end, these materials are just simply discarded which then creates a mountain of problems for the environment.
For the year 2021, artists want to step into the year and tell people that, in fact, during festivals, we don’t need to consume new resources but instead use the things that are already there. All of the artists’ resources, therefore, are the result of the people’s consumption in Bangkok that was re-created in order to tell the story from the point of view of the reuse process. This work wants the audience to be aware of the consumption of resources, how to use it consciously, and inspire everyone to change their lifestyle and the concept of using materials that occur in our daily lives through reuse for maximum benefit, because the reuse process is another way to reduce environmental problems.
***ART ROOM. This room created excitement for everyone as every corner featured a unique photo op no matter which angle you look from.
