An excellent find, when you can find it as it is a bit hidden. If your expecting nicely polished, brightly lit galleries with people walking around in whispered tones then you are very wrong. There are 4 studios 'occupied' with 3 on the way. Some works are hung, lots more are stacked, and this is the beauty of the place. You get to dig around all original pieces to see what there is and there is great variety in different mediums. Well worth the look.

This art village has been reborn and is made up of a number of growing galleries joined by an amazing central tree. If you arrive at the right time you can watch the artists at work. The kids ran with the local kids. A coffee house is currently being constructed but there is plenty of food close by.

A delightful collection of a tiny commune’s interpretation of art in a jungle/garden setting. It’s not a museum people actually live there. Don’t expect any kind of conventional organization just accept it for what it is. It isn’t easy to find but maybe thats a good thing.

Run down and not much to see. Very disappointing sight when I got there. Do not waste your time with this.

Just beautiful to wander between these magical spaces and see creativity in full force - stumble on a painter's work that resonated with us both under the giant fig tree two beautiful children dancing around and the artists work inspired by the sea and sea creatures - blues, green - a great find x

I just visited this artists village and was delighted to meet the artist Somrak Meenamai at work in his studio. His studio is fresh and new and filled with colourful art. His works are playful, sassy, colorful and meticulously completed. Take home a memory or piece of art that is both magical and modern.

Husband and wife team have done a wonderful job in converting a few houses and sheds into a living studio. Whilst it is no way huge, it's authentic and quaint.

We didn't buy anything as getting something back home would have been impossible so we gave them 100 Baht for the look around.

If your around the area it's worth satisfying your curiosity.

Really interesting and eclectic mix of different artists who work here. You can watch the creative process and talk to them about their work as you walk in and around the various buildings. I bet you buy something.

Really lovely atmosphere and some beautiful art particularly Parasopsuk's work... great if you want to get off the tourist track a little. It is not hard to find but it was difficult to find a driver that knew where we wanted to go.
