Pattaya has some fantastic local artists who were particularly evident in South Pattaya and on the sadly no longer Art Street next to Mike Shopping mall. However, places, where you can get these artworks framed, are few and far between especially if you have something that is a more unusual size or you would like something unique to compliment your picture. Here are some of the options that are available to you.
Mana Studio is located on Soi Photisan in Naklua and they specialise in framing artworks and photographs. They have a varied selection of frames that you can choose from that can be built to the size of your painting or image. They are very skilled and pay a lot of attention to detail with their prices being very reasonable. It is common for your frame to be ready the next day although this shouldn’t be relied upon so give yourself and the studio time.
In Potisan area, nice and modern 3 bedroom house for sale
Powergreen Frame is located on the Sukhumvit Road near to the Banglamung Police Station. Like with Mana, they specialise purely in picture framing so are very adept at what they do. They have an extensive range of pre-made frames along with a vast selection that can be made to order. The staff speak some English and the turnover times are quite good so you won’t be waiting for weeks to get things completed.
The Picture Framing Shop
Located on Soi 8, Thepprasit Road in Jomtien, The Picture Framing Shop does exactly what they claim – frame pictures. Like the two previous stores, they offer pre-made frames along with bespoke options with plenty of options available. The tradesmen are very skilled and you will be delighted with the finished articles. Again, it is worth allowing longer than you might imagine to get your frame completed.
This fantastic duplex will highlight your pictures
Lukdod is located just off North Pattaya Road and stock a selection of pictures frames although they are all of a standard size. The selection is quite good and suitable for most pictures that are generally of a standard size. The prices do vary as the shop aims at the tourist market and the quality is perhaps not what you would get at one of the specialist framing companies in the city.
Many of the local supermarkets have small stalls in them on the ground floor. It is common that there will be a specialist frame company there although this type of stall tend to not stay around too long. Also, the supermarkets themselves will have a limited range of fairly standard frames available if this will suit your needs.
Local Art Shops
There are lots of local art shops scattered all around the city. Many will be able to recommend a local craftsman who will be able to create a frame for you. This likely to be someone that they have worked with in the past and who they feel can bring the best out of their image.
