ART IN PARADISE (BANGKOK)
Art in Paradise (Bangkok), the first “illusion” and three-dimensional museum in Bangkok, comprises six permanent exhibition zones with different concepts. Every painting was ranged from period or country themes, and there is also a great mix of traditional and new art. The museum is divided into two floors, over 2,500 square meters and 150 paintings that visitors can have fun and enjoy the new experience with interactive paintings.
Paintings inside Art in Paradise (Bangkok) were drawn by 15 professional artists who initiated “3D” painting in Korea and Thailand, they had spent two and a half months painting the wall and floor by hand from emptiness filled to the perfection with specific techniques through the use of art in a way that Thailand never had before.
Art in Paradise Bangkok - Bangkok Trickeye 3D Museum
Art in Paradise, the very successful interactive attraction which started in Pattaya, is now open at Esplanade Shopping Mall on Ratchada road. Also refered by locals as the Trickeye Museum or 3D Museum, Art in Paradise is great fun for couples, friends and families to spend a few hilarious hours, especially on rainy days. Esplanade Mall is located on the outskirts of Bangkok, but the MRT station is right in front of the mall.
Located on the 4th floor of the rather quiet mall, the new 3D Art in Paradise is a shiny and spotless 2 storey gallery packed with superbly executed paintings in which visitors are invited to be part of dozens of scenes ranging from ‘stairway to hell’, 'ride a flying carpet' to the ‘Coronation of the Emperor’.
Distributed in several large rooms, the artwork done by the artists is really impressive and just admiring it is part of the pleasure of visiting. It’s a bit overwhelming at first to see so many intricate scenes in each room with people everywhere trying to find the best or the silliest pose, but soon the game captures you and you will find yourself trying to strike a pose on a surfboard or above a fictional abyss. To help the visitors, markers with arrows have been placed on the floor to indicate the best angle, and if you look in some hard to find corners, you’ll find photos taken by previous visitors that will help you understand which pose works best with each scene.
Walking around the rooms of Art in Paradise and finding the right pose takes 2 to 3 hours depending on how much fun you are having and how many friends are with you. There is no particular order to go around and take your photos, there are so many scenes to interact with you can go back and forth as you please, especially when someone monopolizes the scene you really want to be in. Trying to describe all the scene depicted in the gallery would spoil the fun, just know that they are different from the ones displayed in the Pattaya gallery.
