local art makes its mark
As the managing director of DCA Art Consultant, Bangkok-based Disaphol Chansiri advises high-profile corporates and private art collectors in Thailand.
I have enjoyed art since I was very young. My family would take me to see temples, such as The Grand Palace, and other places of worship. There, I was fascinated with the murals and the epic stories they depicted. I also enjoyed reading and whenever I went to the library I always looked at the beautiful art books.
My dad encouraged me to go into art advising. In fact, all my close friends and family were very supportive. I have been collecting art for almost 20 years and always used art advisers. I now have a great team who can help others.

Having collected art for over 20 years, it was only natural for Disaphol Chansiri to progress and advise private art collectors in Thailand. In particular, he enjoys collecting Thai antiques, especially those with stories behind their creations.
