Bualuang Painting

Initiated in 1974 by the Bangkok Bank Foundation, the ‘Bualuang Painting’ competition has flourished for three decades, providing strength in Thai arts and culture through encouraging valuable art by Thai artists.

 

The renowned Bualuang Painting competition is the most prestigious in the country. Many previous winners have since gone on to become great artists, some honored as National Artists.
