Piven’s art is about communicating through fun and playfulness. For the last 25 years, Hanoch Piven has been using everyday objects to create his uniquely creative portraits, which have appeared in newspapers and magazines all around the world. Piven does not only offer fresh perspectives on celebrity popular culture and objects which we all have around us, but also invite us to look at the world around you in a new and fresh way.

Art is a perfect way to celebrate years of friendship between Israel and Thailand. Art has no boundaries and can bridge over different social backgrounds and eliminate language barriers. In the spirit of the 60th year cooperation, the Embassy of Israel has worked together with the National Gallery and Silapakorn University. Mr. Piven conducted a two day workshop with Silapakorn art students. They worked under his guidance and inspiration. The results are also displayed in the exhibition.

While in Bangkok, Piven gave lectures and led workshops for university students from Srinakharinwirot University and Bangkok University; in collaboration with the Thailand-Israel Friendship Foundation, The Institute for the Promotion of Teaching Science and Technology (IPST); Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA); National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA).

In display are 40 large-scale prints of some of Piven's most memorable political, historical or pop culture celebrity caricatures.

Pivenworld doesn’t want you just to be a passive onlooker but an active participant. Therefore, we have created an interactive wall and organized workshops, in which you will be able to create your own portraits and creations, using marvelous objects we have collected. 

Come to play with us!
