Clifford Price or Goldie.

 

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.

Congratulations on the opening.

 

Out of all the things I've heard and seen, I do think this has a chance of success. Best of luck with the future.

Plenty of affluent individuals in Bangkok that love western culture or love to be seen embracing it. Similar galleries in London’s swanky Kings rd are the places to be seen. 
 

Goodie is a great success and a lot smarter than his appearance suggests, often seen around Phuket’s Kamala beach.

I thought the renowned DJ was going to be Alan Freeman or at least Pete Murrey.

My thoughts as well - even Tony Blackburn and Noel Edmonds! Personally, I have never heard of "Goldie" but on referring to Wikipedia:-

 

Clifford Joseph Price MBE, better known as Goldie, is a British musician, music producer, DJ, visual artist and actor. Initially gaining exposure for his work as a graffiti artist, Goldie became well known for his pioneering role as a musician in the 1990s UK jungle, drum and bass and breakbeat hardcore scenes. Wikipedia

Hahaha .. somehow Bill I'm getting the vision that Jungle , drum'n'bass and breakbeat won't really be your cup of tea so no surprise if you haven't heard of him ..

Could only be Bill or Graeme now. Sadly Tim Brooke-Taylor was taken out by the covid back in April.
