During World Autism Awareness Week (29th March – 4th April 2021), BOLDR Supply Company joined forces with the Autistic Thai Foundation and created a Venture watch that features original artwork by Mr. Ratapat Chantamit.
This new Venture watch boasts a Koi fish artwork designed by Mr. Ratapat Chantamit, an exceptional artist from the Thailand-based social enterprise Art Story by Autistic Thai.
The Autistic Thai Foundation supports the development of skills in autistic children and adults, helping them find and nurture their passions using methods tailored to their interests.
ART STORY by the Autistic Thai Foundation is a social enterprise that provides a landscape for autistic individuals to exercise their exceptional talents and develop new skills. The foundation believes that autistic individuals are no less creative than regular individuals, but simply have not been given a platform to express themselves in their own unique way.
Over years of working with autistic individuals, the foundation has created and sold a variety of reasonably-priced products under the brand Art Story. The initiative is funded with the help of many generous supporters and spearheaded by Dr.Chusak Janthayanond, President & ‘Guardian’ of the Autistic Thai Foundation.
The Autistic Thai Foundation continues to churn out quality products and works that span all five sensory perceptions, be it through design & craft (vision & touch), baristas & bakers (taste & smell), and a Thai traditional musical band (hearing). Through consistency and dedication, the foundation has helped many of their members to achieve a proficiency level that allows them to enter the workforce, earn a steady income, and live a purposeful life.
This watch sports an automatic movement with a rotating disc dial and Art’s elegant Koi fish painting.
