About Us

“My approach is to give an account of the development of artistic attitudes in Thailand from the point of view of illuminating the culture, which reflects changing values both in terms of materials and motivation, rather than purely looking at the aesthetics. By making people aware of the value of the past in Thailand they can more easily understand the ideas behind the creativity and styles of today.”

Piriya Krairiksh, The Roots of Thai Art, 2012.

Inspired by Associate Professor Dr.Piriya’s approach to Thai art history, the Piriya Krairiksh Foundation was founded on 26 March 2012, to promote original thinking in the study, research, and dissemination of knowledge in the field of Thai art history and related cultures.
