The Art Graden - Hidden Treasure on a small Island

The last two weeks I ve spent on Koh Lipe, Thailand, a small Island in the Andaman Sea close to the Malayan border.

Easily to get around in one and a half hours by foot, I discovered a hidden treasure in the very centre of the island.
An artistic place which invites like minded people to do some arts or just hang around and enjoy the tiny guesthouse.
Far away from the busy Walkingstreet, surrounded by the jungle, this place has a special vibe where inspiration comes through.

The Art Garden exists ever since and is run by the local Thai Mr. Gee, a warmhearted and instruments loving artist.
Complementary to his Batik Art, there are two other artists living with him longterm doing amazing paintings on classical canvas.

Having been around a couple of days I caught the inspiration:
Just repaired and renewed the bike to do some “guerilla advertising“ for The Art Garden.
