    Baan Dam

    Continuing on my Northern Thailand mini-vacation/tourist excursion on Tuesday Jan 28 we visited Chiang Rai’s Baan Dam or The Black House by Thawan Duchanee, painter and sculptor. Duchanee is/was considered to be a world-renowned artist. His macabre style generated serious discontent and many protests. Thawan Duchanee 1939-2014 passed at 75 yo of liver failure caused by hypertension and diabetes.

    Baan Dam consists of about 40 buildings housing his “artwork”. I would consider it a must-see site for adults. I certainly wouldn’t bring an impressionable young child there – far too many “borderline” questions would be raised. I enjoyed the visit. This guy is controversial and eccentric to say the least. Has great bends on sex, death, crocodiles and buffalos. This man definitely marched to the beat of a different drummer.

    The site is fascinating. Leave the kids home.
