BANGKOK, September 26. /TASS/. Exhibitions of the Russian painters’ works and photographs depicting the beauty of Russia’s nature, will be held next year in the capital of Thailand to commemorate the 120th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic relations, the Russian ambassador to the Kingdom of Thailand Kirill Barsky said in an interview with TASS.
"Twenty Russian painters created these paintings in 2015 after two visits to Thailand," he said. "A group of painters spent around a month and a half in the Kingdom. They made more than 500 paintings, watercolors and graphics." According to the Russian diplomat, these works include portraits, landscapes, paintings of architectural monuments and animals.
Another project dedicated to the 120th anniversary of Russian-Thai diplomatic relations is going to involve a photographic exhibition in Bangkok. "This past July, the renowned Thai photographer David Lau visited Russia upon an invitation from the Russian side. He is a businessman, restaurateur and patron of the arts, but he is most famous for these photographs," Barsky noted.
Lau visited the towns included in the Golden Ring of Russia route, staying in Vladimir, Suzdal, Murom, Rostov Veliky, Sergiyev Posad and Moscow. "Over a period of two weeks, he took a huge number of photos. Lau plans to choose 120 of his best photos, numbering the amount of years that Russia and Thailand have been maintaining diplomatic relations, and present them to the Thai public in an exhibition covering Russia’s natural beauty, architectural masterpieces and its people," the Russia diplomat noted. 0-bea/pa.
