Get lost in the ‘Elements’
Elements by Michael Deloffre
As an artist, Michael Deloffre is heavily inspired by nature, its forces and components. In this solo show at S Gallery, the artist is presenting abstract paintings that convey the world in the language of “philosophia naturalis”. So, take a break from your artificial surroundings, put a cocktail in hand and reconnect to nature through art.

RCB Film Club’s June opening Film: Blood of my Blood
Did you know that the River City Bangkok is another independent screening venue in Bangkok? The RCB opens their film club this Saturday at 4pm with the Portuguese film Blood of my Blood (2011), an award-winning drama considered to be one of Portugal’s best films of all time. The event is free of charge with complimentary wine and snacks from the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel next door, which almost sounds too good to be true.
