Phangan Island Culture | A Patron's Dream on Koh Phangan

Several resorts and restaurants have Koh Phangan art galleries that display local artists' works. Koh Phangan art is very important and original works can be found in many places on the island. Local artists are encouraged to display their works by presenting them to large audiences that patronize the bars and restaurants on Koh Phangan.

You can have any design you wish drawn upon request and there are also many popular designs already on-hand to purchase. Popular Koh Phangan art designs include Thai and Chinese flowers, dragons, Full Moon parties, and bamboo.

Original Aon Koh Phangan art designs are very popular through the island and can be found in many gift shops. The Koh Phangan art designer uses only natural materials and all artwork is drawn on rice paper, freehand, with Chinese ink.

Many framed pictures are available for purchase, but you can also have your own special designs drawn on rice paper and framed as well. Having your artwork framed on Koh Phangan will be far cheaper than if you tried to get it framed upon your return home. Frames are available in an assortment of sizes and styles and are all of good quality.

A visit to The Bamboo Artist in the center of Thong Sala is essential to your search for Koh Phangan art. Koh Phangan art designs are found on many products including wall hangings and banners, table and ceiling lanterns, head and neck scarves, ornamental fans, rice paper posters, cards and postcards, bookmarks, notebooks, and photo albums.

You can have Koh Phangan art designed personally for you that depicts memories of your trip. Original Koh Phangan art designs also make great souvenirs for your loved ones back home. These are very affordable. You have many opportunities to obtain original Koh Phangan art work while on the island, so make sure you take advantage of them while visiting.
