Advocates: Asiatique The Riverfront

Written by | Found in: Advocates | Posted on: 29 Jan 2014 - 9:58 am

Since embarking on my recent adventure travelling and working in the East I am constantly crossing paths with wonderfully creative people that inspire me endlessly. In particular this shop I discovered last night in Asiatique, Bangkok’s newest night market.

OUU KUANSUWAN is the owner and designer of BY MYSELF, handcrafted leather goods.  His style is simplistic & functional with an artisan’s attention to detail & good quality raw materials.  Who doesn’t love that? Check out his fine craftsmanship here.

If you’re planning a trip to Bangkok make sure you visit Asiatique The Riverfront and pop into Oou’s little shop and experience firsthand his gracious hospitality and spoil yourself with something from his fine selection of leather goods.

The show brings together six years of work by Pieter Hugo and marks a move towards a more personalised, introspective approach. It asks & reflects  troubling questions about South African conflict and who we are as a society, past, present and future.
Pieter Hugo, who needs little introduction, was born in Cape Town in 1976 and his work, which is primarily documentary style portraiture, has gained him global success.

See the Kin exhibition at the Stevenson Gallery in Cape Town until 23rd November 2013
