Portrait of Val 2016 - 2 (3) (484x726).jpg

Bangkok is not short of expats and among the many artistically gifted of them was Valerie Goutard. Born in France in 1967, Goutard spent much of her life in South America, Africa and Europe until in 2004, when she created her workshop in Bangkok.

Recognised internationally for her work, which have been showcased widely across Asia, Goutard was honoured with the 2015 Trophée des Français de l’Etranger, the Trophy of French Expatriates in the Art of Living category, in recognition of her work and her singular life abroad. In October 2016, Goutard tragically passed away in a road accident, leaving a legacy of her artistic works behind.

In commemoration of the gifted artist that she was and in celebration of her life, the exhibition entitled Val 1967 – 2016 will be showcased at S Gallery, Sofitel Sukhumvit Bangkok. Admire an array of her sculptures  from March 21 till May 21.The gallery is opened daily between 10am-10pm.
