World-renowned national artist Thawan Duchanee has collaborated with ICONSIAM and Fulldome.pro — recognised for incredible immersive technologies and digital domes — to create a stunning, all-immersive art experience. Created to engage all your senses, the ‘Immersive Art of Thawan Duchanee’ employs advanced digital technologies to take Thailand’s art scene to a new level.
Presented in ICONSIAM, legendary masterpieces are given new life through the 20-minute digital experience, and the result is a dreamy, moving exhibit that perfectly combines the old and the new. Visitors can expect to see paintings, sculptures, architecture, literature, and performances, all recreated in a way that appeals to everyone and anyone, regardless of generation or demographic. What’s truly fascinating is how well-recognised specialists from all across the globe — from hollywood light and sound artists, to top animators — have come together to create this experience, which in many ways offers a continuation of the country’s existing art masterpieces. Launching in Thailand for the first time, its set to rotate to other locations across the world.

He was joined by Director of Baandam Museum Dr. Doytibet Duchanee, Director of ICONSIAM Chadatip Chutrakul, and the President of Marketing and Corporate Relations of Siam Piwat Co., Ltd Mayuree Chaipromprasith.
