About

Hi everyone!

My name is Gina Amato, I am Photographer/Graphic Designer. 

After travelling through Thailand for the last year i have fallen in love with the country and really want to give something back to this amazing place. 

I met so many amazing artists with so many different skills and  I asked myself, how can I build an Art Community to help people share their art, make new friends and build something up together.

My Idea began to grow... 

The Idea was born. I want to create an Art House to provide a place to showcase local and foreign art and help artists thrive. The art will change each month with a new opening where musicians play, graffiti artists battle or other creative artists will perform.

 To support local artists we will have corners with pop up stores to display and sell their handmade goods, ranging from jewellery and craft goods to clothing and tattooists.

The art house includes a coffee shop with our fresh long roasting beans from naples and a mix of Italian and thai traditional sweets so people can stay longer have a coffee and enjoy art at the same time. We have our own roasting agency, which is based in Naples ( Italy ) where we sell our own coffee back in Germany. 

Thai and Italian specialties and are offered at Art Studio. With Italian and thai sweets, starters, full bodied roasted coffee from naples, speciality freshly mixed cocktail to create a perfect environment to share art and meet people.

We want to create a Graphic Design/Print Studio into the back of the shop. So People have the opportunity to order Posters,Logos,Websites etc. and get their design fresh printed from Art Studio.

I want to combine my western design knowledge with the current Thai design scene. Mixing it up to produce beautiful designs which include logo design and corresponding print to website development and design.

Kombine a Guesthose in the back

We want to find a place with a few Bedrooms, to offer ,,Bed and Breakfast,, where people can sleep in one of a beautiful designed room with handmade Art from our local Artists. 

We want to give the opportunity to dive into the Thai Culture and meet Local People.

This why i am asking for 10.000 euro. This money will help me to get equipment and build up infrastructure and to build up the graphic design studio. I am offering incentives for your donations, meaning the amount you give will lead to you receiving a one of our amazing gifts!

Your support means everything to me. Thank you for your love and support I really appreciate any donation you can give to bring my dream a bit closer.

If I make my dream come true I would love to see you all in Thailand

Art Studio showcases the latest artists from across Thailand and supports them with their income. 

The Art Studio is built and run entirely with donations, visitor contributions and also from revenue generated from our range of workshops. 

The pop up stores can be rented by the artists at a cheaper subsidised rate to help them grow their businesses with minimum overheads. In addition, the graphic design studio will have the facilities to print high quality products. 

Risks and challenges

I grew up in a family who owned multiple restaurants, pizzerias and ice parlours and i have worked in a variety of coffee shops from a young age. Because of our business at home I learnt a lot from my parents, especially my brother who built up his own coffee company. Having their support and guidance will keep me on the right track and allow me to implement a sound business plan.

Here in Thailand I've gained some amazing friends who support my idea and are willing to help me to grow this new venture. This will be a challenging task but my drive, commitment and passion for this project will not allow me to fail!
