The Flamino by British Painter Marco Smigovaggi

Contemporary artist Marco Smigovaggi’s first Asian art exhibition originally scheduled for the 5th September in the Shamrock pub in the Khao San Road area of Bangkok Thailand, ‘Run as smoothly as we expected’ says promoter Mark Alexander of SEO 2 Marketing, ‘If not better’. The low profile exhibition which was rescheduled at the last minute to the 7th September was held with intention to raise international awareness of the British born painter’s work by tickling the tastes of international travellers frequenting the world famous backpacker hub.

‘We are not sure why we had to reschedule to the 7th’ says his promoter and close friend ‘maybe the management thought there would be a better turn out midweek, but it went like a dream and there was a great turnout with many travelers, fans and art critics visiting the venue especially to see the artists paintings. We are especially grateful to the management and staff for securing the bar which was home for the night of two of the artist’s paintings ‘Soul’ and ‘Flamingo’ that were on loan from a private collector who had previously purchased the two paintings for over $100,000 US dollars.

The flat cap wearing Yorkshire born painter who resides in Bangkok, Thailand, has become somewhat of a character among the capital’s art elite. Modern artist, Smigovaggi who was born in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, has often been compared to the likes of Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali but denies any influence by the two artists. ‘The Only influence in my life is me’ says the artist, although he has been known to openly show his admiration for the works of Dali and Modigliani.
