Art Monaco'10 Special Edition art fair

Art Exhibition: Art Monaco'10 – Special Edition
Artist: Jirapat Tatsanasomboon and Pinaree Sanpitak
Dates: 29 April – 2 May, 2010
Venue: Grimaldi Forum, Monaco

Thavibu Gallery will present works by the well known Thai artists Pinaree Sanpitak and Jirapat Tatsanasomboon at the Art Monaco'10 – Special Edition art fair, which will take place at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco.

Pinaree Sanpitak is 48 years old and has exhibited widely with solo shows in Thailand, Singapore, Japan, France and the USA, as well as participating in the 1999 3rd Asia-Pacific Triennial in Australia, and the 2nd Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial in 2002. Her works are found in museum collections in Asia and beyond.

For over 15 years Pinaree has evolved her primal images of femininity down to two recurrent emblems - the vessel and the mound. Far from exhausting her subject, the industrious, explorative artist resourcefully and imaginatively continues to create interesting modes of manifesting intimate interpretations to the female psyche within contemporary society. Pinaree recently collaborated with master glass-blowers from Murano, Venice in Italy to produce unique breast-cloud sculptures that are both solid yet ephemeral in their transparent lustrous presence.

Jirapat Tatsanasomboon is 39 years old and one of Thailand’s most talented and upcoming artists. He graduated from Silapakorn University in 1999 and he has participated in several exhibitions in Thailand and also in Korea (2003), USA, New York (2006), Singapore 2008), and India (2009).

Jirapat applies a pop-art style to his paintings and plays around with well known images and icons of western art and transforms these well known icons by changing their appearances and putting them in a new and alien Thai setting. The interaction between the Thai and western characters may be viewed as symbolizing interactions at various levels: east-west, modern-traditional and USA-Thailand.
