OUR JOURNEY

Since opening his first art space in Bangkok (Rock Around Asia Art Gallery) in 2011, Eric Monteil has constantly been working on bringing a new vision to setup an efficient art market in Thailand to reality, by initiating an industry paradigm shift through new technologies, launching Silapix.com, the first professional platform to connect artists with the hospitality, residential, commercial and cultural sectors.


His passion for art and interior decoration has been constant for many years. Eric realized he could launch a business in this field during 2010 whilst he spent seven months travelling on a motorcycle throughout Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar and Indonesia).


On his journey, he met numerous talented local artists and craftsmen who were struggling to sell their art and make a living. This is when and how the idea of Rock Around Asia Art Gallery was born, forming the beginning of Art Consulting Thailand, Silapix.com and Art Consulting Asia, a long amazing and enthralling story to tell.

Eric Monteil: Founder Managing Director

Eric Monteilis the Founder Managing Director of Art Consulting Asia and Silapix.com, art consultant, curator and photographer. Born in 1967 in France, Eric considers himself as a worldwide citizen, also as a creative entrepreneur with a true passion for innovation, history, art and design. He grew up as a gentle rebel and studied chemistry and physics at university in Paris. Latterly he graduated with an Executive MBA. Eric worked as an innovator in various industries: finance, IT, cosmetics and air sports before flying beyond his own horizons to “Rock Around Asia” on a motorcycle in 2010. That’s how he came into art with a new proposal for the art industry, focused on serving the hospitality, residential, commercial and cultural sectors. Eric’s pledge is to give properties a soul by enhancing the interior design with bespoke works of art. His vision intends to use new technologies to build the first sustainable online art market for businesses and art lovers and bring transparency to the art industry (Silapix ecosystem). The promotion of art and culture remains the project of his life, his absolute passion, his mission on earth, his contribution to human legacy and nothing can stop it, because “Art is Art, and everything else is everything else” (Fredrick Adolph “Ad” Reinhardt).

Concurrently, he curates artists and artworks for high-end venues, with the purpose of transforming them into exquisite art spaces by giving them a soul. After his graduation from University of Finance and Marketing in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, majoring in English Literature, he has been to places and met multiple people in Asia. Studying English has opened  doors for him. After the few gap months in Bangkok following his graduation, he started working in the Customer Service Industry in different multicultural companies. As a freelancer, he is an English coach, content writer (for an architectural firm), translator, proofreader and interpreter. Since he met Eric, everything changed. Born in 1994 in a small village in Southern Vietnam, as a spiritual person, Hao has been constantly questioning his very own existence. With art, he finds himself another reason to celebrate his being. His sincere appreciation for beauty is what makes him a passionate art curator.
