Bangkok’s first gallery showcasing contemporary street art was launched on July 4 by internationally acclaimed British DJ Clifford Price, who is better known as Goldie.

Located in Warehouse 30, a trendy community project in the district of Charoenkrung, the Aurum Gallery was inspired by the 1980s golden era of New York graffiti. The 528 square metre gallery is seen as a celebration of Goldie’s lifetime passion and career as an influential contributor to the art scene spanning over three decades.

The gallery will showcase the works of influential world artists, including Vhils, Belin, Saturno, Ben Eine, Odeith, Bio and Crash to name a few. It also hopes to unearth and celebrate a growing, exciting pool of local and regional talent such as P7, Benzilla, Jecks, and Wal Chirachaisakul.

On display are masterpieces such as Belin’s “Mickey Confinament”, Goldie’s own “Apache Girl”, as well as several pieces from Vhil’s “Matters” series.

Aurum Gallery will also house a live workshop that can showcase these artists in action as well as provide master classes to aspiring talent. The gallery also aims to hold events on a regular basis, allowing art enthusiasts a chance to be completely immersed in the process of creation.

It also intends to be the “go-to-gallery” for prominent artists as well as a platform to elevate up-and-coming artists in Thailand and the region.

By presenting legendary works of established artists alongside the boundary-pushing pieces by fresh faces, Aurum Gallery hopes to bring something new and exciting to the burgeoning art scene in Southeast Asia.
