CO-FOUNDER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR, ATT 19
For creating a multidisciplinary creative space to showcase emerging Thai artists
Porntip Attakanwong has a deep connection to the arts. Her family is behind Bangkok’s renowned Lek Gallery, which is just around the corner from her latest project, ATT 19. This multidisciplinary art and lifestyle space was repurposed using reclaimed and recycled materials from a school house that was more than 120 years old. It’s home to a shop selling one-off and antique furniture, a restaurant and a gallery featuring works by emerging, overlooked Thai artists.
