Raw Art Moovment, Ko Tao

What we say: 3.5 stars

Raw Art Moovment is a kind of creative hotspot and space, a unique concept for Ko Tao that has very quickly been embraced by the community and visitors alike.

Artfully Done

Artfully done.

Lisa, who is one of the owners and an artist too, simply needed a studio. Her husband Denny, a writer, needed somewhere to write. One thing led to another, and before they knew it they had opened Raw Art Moovment, perched on top of Moov Bar and Restaurant in Mae Haad, just off Songserm road (which leads to Sensi Paradise and Charm Churree). The space had been unused for a while but has great views and catches the sea breeze to cool the terrace too.

Step Up

Step Up

It’s quite difficult to sum up exactly what the place is. Yes, there is a bar and yes, Sundays often sees live music, yet you should expect more of a jam session, where anyone might pop along and get involved. Sangria is likely to be flowing and the gallery wall space is most likely to be exhibiting art, craft or photography.

On a normal day you’ll find a quiet space to enjoy or use your creative talents in as you see fit. There’s space to write and create and the atmosphere is so welcoming that you can just pop up and soak in the calm.

Just Chill

Just chill.

Update September 2014: The Raw Art Movement is only open on Sundays now, though they are discussing more afternoon/evening hours.
