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 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.

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).
