De’ Lapae Art Space Narathiwat is the only art gallery in Narathiwat. This area is in the Deep South of Thailand that is known for instability, unrest and violence, but that does not limit or lesser the value of its artistic expression. On the other hand, artists use art as a mean to tell their intimate stories and their everyday living with a hope that audiences will have a better understanding of how people are living and surviving in this region. De’ Lapae Art Space aims to expand the definition of art to a wider audience through their residency program. The gallery hopes to allow a younger generation of artists an opportunity to further express themselves and their feelings toward the environment they are living in and create artworks that the viewers are able to appreciate and understand. De’ Lapae Art Space now is being recognized for its strong exhibitions including Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Narathiwat and Malaysia with a further goal to produce artists that could compete in the world stage.
