Artist supplies in Bangkok or Chiang Mai
8th May, 2008
Hi there --
Traveling for six weeks through Thailand, Laos and Vietnam (leaving the US on May 19) for the first time. My partner is an artist (oil painter) and will need to pick up some supplies upon arrival in Bangkok - specifically mineral spirits/turpenoid (flammable, and can't be brought on a plane).
Any ideas of stores in Bangkok that could provide this? We are also heading up to Chiang Mai shortly after arriving in Thailand, so tips for there would be good as well.
We have some contacts in Bangkok via a friend, but thought the forum might be useful to query as well.
Thanks for any and all help!

Teo Namfah Gallery in Silom Galleria, level 3, 919/1 Silom Rd (near Silom Soi 19), would be a good place to start in Bangkok.
Otherwise I'd try the malls -- eg Paragon, Emporium etc or perhaps Chatuchak Market.
Can't help with Chiang Mai sorry.
