The Centara Grand Hotel at CentralWorld (999/99 Rama 1 Rd) is getting into the art scene this month with a show entitled Mikey’s Vie en Rose. The 19-year old Mikey has chosen a “pink period” theme, infusing a rose-tinted flavour into his dreamlike, sometimes nightmarish, visions of a haunted world. Born Michael Jiraros, the youngster had a dramatic childhood in the North of Thailand, eventually ending up orphaned and alone. Through a series of events his work came to attention of Somtow Sucharitkul. Mikey now works out of a private studio in Somtow’s house and plans to continue his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. The exhibition will be opened by H.E. The Ambassador of Austria, and start time is 5pm.
