Posted on June 16, 2014


In keeping with Hansar Hotels & Resorts commitment to CSR and following the success of their last event to raise money for those affected by the Philippines Typhoon; Hansar Bangkok will hold a unique live painting charity event on Thursday 26th June, from 7.00pm-11.00pm at Hansar Bangkok’s Poolside bar and terrace.

Monies raised from ticket sales and auction will be donated to the Foundation for Slum Child Care (FSSC) which has been under the patronage of HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana since it was established in 1981. The Foundation is dedicated to providing education and care for children ages from 4 months to 5 years old within the Koeng Toey slum which is located within central Bangkok.

The amount of Baht 700 Baht ($18 USD) can provide care for 1 child for 1 month. Currently the foundation supports more than 200 children in their four centers. For more information on the FSCC please visit: http://www.fscc.or.th


The Concept of Live Painting
Live painting is a form of improvisational performance art in which artists complete a visual art piece in a public performance, often at a bar, music concert, or public event, accompanied by a DJ or live music. The unique quality of live painting is the fact that viewers are able to watch a piece of art develop and being made from the first to the last step up to its completion. Thereby, the audience becomes a spectator of the entire process of creation and can witness an artist’s working style and technique.

The Artists
Melanie Gritzka–del Villar is a half-German, half-Filipino artist who engages with issues of identity and hybridism through her interdisciplinary approach using objects, painting, collage and street art as her main channels of expression.

Sandro Thomas (Sath) is Spanish and his art is created with basic tools such as pencil on paper initially. Sath’s artwork makes a personal impression and stays very much on message.

The Event
In addition to the live painting event, there will be free flow wine, beer and canapés, live entertainment from the Jazz Band “Milestones”, live painting from the artists, an auction and raffle prizes, creating a fun-filled evening while raising funds for an important cause. Both artists will create an individual piece of artwork to be auctioned during the event as well as a combined piece of artwork which will be the first prize in the raffle.
