founded by karoon sosothikul and prakasit phornprapha, two movers and shakers in bangkok's media and business scene, echo one art space was recently launched into the city's thriving contemporary arts scene with a big bang. in collab with nanzuka gallery in tokyo, japanese cult artist hajime sorayama [1947] is bestowed with his very first solo exhibition in this neck of the woods. sorayama originally trained as an illustrator, and is arguably best known for his precisely detailed erotic portrayals of feminized biomechanoid robots, and which eventually evolved into sculptures as well. the exhibition at echo one art space, aptly entitled sawasdee sexy robot, opened in attendance of the artist, and presents a lifesize sexy robot sculpture amidst a series of paintings, and robot-like bearbrick 2000% statues that have been introduced in thailand for the very first time [on through dec 31]. die-hard sorayama fans are able to snap up a number of sorayama-branded items onsite. location: siam motors building, 891/1 thanon rama 1, 9th floor [siam].
