"Speedy Grandma" is a space for Thai emerging artist by Leee Anantawat and Thomas Menard.
Speedy Grandma is a space created by two friends. The aim of the Speedy Grandma Gallery is to encourage and support dynamic and emerging artists either thai or international. Any kind of contemporary art will be promoted, urban art, pop art, surrealism, materialist, comics, illustration, graphic design, typography...
Artist talks will also take place at the Gallery to generate critical debate on modern issues and art practises.
A selection of collectible, prints, art books, and object dug out from flea market, artist workshop, or trendy store will be proposed in our Speedy Grandma Shop.
And the Speedy Grandma Bar has of course the same purpose as any other bar...
The name "Speedy Grandma" come from an urban ghost legend. A Grandma riding a motorbike in Bangkok was cut in two pieces by a string stretched in a small street. The legend says that if anyone rides too fast in that small street, he will see in his wing mirror the upper half Grandma's body crawling after his vehicle... As an urban legend can be spread out quickly, the "Speedy Grandma" space aims at popularizing Art and intend to promote a new generation of talented and ambitious artists. The name also reveals the attitude of its two owners, quirky.
All exhibitions are organized by Lee Anantawat and Thomas Menard.
Lee was born and bred in Bangkok. She developed her artistic fair while she had a constructive and fulfilling experience in Melbourne studying art. She has been an artist for years now and came back 2 years ago to her home town as a lecturer at Chulalongkorn and Bangkok University. Her complementary graphic designer business is a good way to keep tracking talented artists and to be up-to-date with contemporary trends and audience's expectations. Curating promising artists in a gallery project is the next logical step of her ambition.
Thomas was working in financial markets. Grown up in a family dealing with art and antiques business, Thomas finally decided to come back to his first passion, Art. He left France, his native land and find a place in a prospering country, meet creative and interesting people and grab this amazing opportunity to develop Speedy Grandma Project.
A collection of permanent art will also be available. So you are welcome to check it out at "Speedy Grandma" space.
