A FEW WORDS FROM THE FOUNDER
Artvorm is a boutique art educational consultancy and advisory platform based in Bangkok, Thailand. Founded and directed by Thanarat Asvasirayothin, it aims to offer comprehensive art consulting services to artists, art students, art schools, and collectors.
We tailor our services to meet each client’s specific needs, including education, art academic tutoring (IG/A-Level/IB), art career counseling, digital & partnership marketing, artist liaison, art sales, and art-school portfolio preparations.
Artists, art students, and art practitioners receive resources, advice, and support from ArtVorm regarding how best to keep abreast of significant changes within this highly dynamic and constantly evolving environment. In this way, our services and community equip them with a solid foundation in the arts that goes far beyond traditional tutoring schools and educational institutions.
The Existing Need
“I founded Artvorm because I saw an acute need for art advisory to play a vital role in Thailand’s art industry and today’s arts education. Artists, and the traditional art educational system that nurture them, must adapt to the upgrading consumption trends in the physical and digital art world. This has particular importance within the newly created meta-digital worlds where NFTs, crypto art, and the metaverse are becoming increasingly important. Artists and art practitioners ought to be supported and educated in as many ways as possible beyond traditional art tutoring schools and educational institutions – and yet there persist considerable obstacles to making such support feasible in Thailand, including the lack of both an aggregation platform for underrepresented artists and collectors and media platforms for showcasing art industry news and understanding of the artist’s creative process, the workings of the commercial art industry, how its market functions, and the acknowledgments of key art market players.”
