Thailand – Parent real-estate developer Siam Piwat in Thailand and one of its top lifestyle destinations, ICONSIAM, have partnered to bring the ‘Thailand Digital Arts Festival 2022’; a digital art event that features physical artworks categorized by artistic techniques and skill level, as well as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT).
The exhibit, which has opened on 5 March and to run until 20 March, will allow attendees to appreciate the masterpieces of their favourite artists from both the digital and physical world, and will enable them to view the unique techniques of over 140 artists through more than 1,400 artworks.
Aside from Siam Piwat and ICONSIAM, the event was also developed together with Baandam Museum and also KASIKORN X, creator of Coral platform, a marketplace for Non-Fungible Tokens.
