Although the man hardly needs an introduction, Clifford Joseph Price (MBE) is an internationally acclaimed British musician, DJ, actor and artist. You might know him better as Goldie, drum 'n' bass don and downright legend. While his popularity stems from his work as a musician and actor, Goldie originally found his calling as a street artist and was a respected figure at the inception of the graffiti movement. Now he's ready to elevate his love for the arts with the opening of an art gallery.
Called Aurum Gallery, the space will open in Thailand this June. This makes sense since the artist lives in Thailand for part of the year. Aurum Gallery will be housed in Chareon Krung’s trendy Warehouse 30 project near the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.
Aurum Gallery will be a celebration of Goldie’s lifetime passion and career as an influential contributor to the art scene, which spans over three decades. Some of the world’s most influential artists in the scene will be joining Goldie in exhibiting and selling their work at Aurum including Vhils, Odeith, Barry Reigate, Mode2, Bio, Pam Glew, Crash and more.
The gallery will house contemporary, urban and street art, and in addition to exhibiting the work of internationally acclaimed artists, it will also look to unearth and celebrate a growing and exciting pool of local and regional talent.
Aurum Gallery will also include live workshop area that will be used to showcase artists in action as well as offering masterclasses to aspiring talent and art lovers alike.
Watch this space for more updates nearer to the opening of Aurum Gallery.
