Chris Coles is the visual arts representative of the Bangkok Noir movement. An artist and filmmaker, he divides his time between the coast of Maine and Bangkok. A well travelled artist, he counts among his many films, LA Story, Chaplin, Cutthroat Island, Road to Wellville, Rainbow War, Ballet Robotique, Rosary Murders, the Superman Films and TV Series Sirens. His expressionist paintings of Bangkok’s nightlife reveal a raw and primitive layer of the human experience. The predator and prey are given equal billing in this remarkable show.
Christopher G. Moore, a Canadian writer, is no stranger to readers and has more than 20 novels to his name. Moore’s Noir novels are the perfect complement to Coles paintings. In the words of the National Post, Moore is known for the way he captures the “bewitching spirit and rice-cooker passions of Southeast Asia”. Both artists are core members of the Bangkok Noir movement. www.liamsgallery.com Liam's Gallery 352/107 Soi 4 Pratamnak Road Moo 12 Nong Prue Banglamung, Pattaya 20150 Tel. +66 038 306172 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
