“Thai x Israeli : LIFE UNDER COVID” is the first ever cooperation in the field of Comic Arts between Thailand and Israel. Israel is known all over the world as the ‘Startup Nation’ for its people’s creativity that has driven the country’s advancement in innovation. Meanwhile, CEA is a primary organization that fosters Thailand’s creative economy. 12 renowned artists from Thailand and 12 renowned artists from Israel, have created the works that depict society and cultures from their own distinct viewpoints. Here are some of the names you might recognize:

“This exhibition is a proof that even in difficult moments, creativity of the people can shine through and help lighten the hearts of those who see it. It also demonstrates that no matter how challenging the situation, Israel and Thailand still remain good partners. We are grateful for all the artists who brought us joy, Israelis and Thais alike. I hope this exhibition will ease your daily stress and inspire you in one way or another.”The Ambassador of Israel to Thailand H.E. Dr. Meir Shlomo
