In-Land Out-Cast : A photographic exhibition by Olivier Pin-Fat

In-Land Out-Cast
A photographic exhibition by Olivier Pin-Fat

3 April ? 30 May 2010
[Opening party on Sat 3 Apr from 6.30 - 9 pm]
at Kathmandu Photo Gallery, Bangkok

Possessed by Bangkok as by a witch's familiar, the electrifying cult photo-artist Olivier Pin-Fat takes feverish forays into "a living necropolis, a derelict interior--phantasmal, emblematic, broken and concrete-entombed"; a film noir whose cast are the city's spirits - "its detritus, its insane, hungry, homeless, ostracised, unsure if they're male or female, alive or dead, unformed and undefined."

Kathmandu Photo Gallery is at 87 Pan road (near Indian Temple), off Silom road, Bangrak, Bangkok 10500 THAILAND.Five minutes walk from either Surasak or Chong Nonsi skytrain stations.
Tel : (66) 02-234-6700
Fax : (66) 02-661-4413

Open daily: 11 AM to 7 PM, closed on Monday.

Origami Workshop by Ekkasit Khemnguad

Origami Workshop by Ekkasit Khemnguad
Ekkasit grew up with Japanese culture as his mother was the head of Japan Foundation's Activity Department. At the age of 5, Ekkasit was introduced to the art of origami by his mother and fell in love with it ever since. Aspired to be an origami master, Ekkasit has been hard at work from folding different intricate pieces to coming up with difficult designs like the Ganesh origami that gained him a reputation. In November 2008, he co-founded Thai Origami Club with having more than 2500 active members. Ekkasit will showcase his talent and demonstrate that origami is much more than just folding a paper crane. The workshop will include easy-to-follow basics as well as some challenging designs.

Origami Workshop by Ekkasit Khemnguad
Saturday 3 April at 1.30 pm
5th floor, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre
**Seats are limited. Reservation is highly recommended.

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.

Liberation by Utai Nopsiri

“Liberation”  solo exhibition of Utai Nopsiri
Utai Nopsiri returns to town with his latest works after having received huge success from the first solo show “Only Appearance” in 2007.

     Utai Nopsiri has been creating sculptures for over 10 years and was the recipient of several awards.  Introduced to 100 Tonson Gallery by Chatchai Puipia in 2006, we are very proud to have discovered and introduced to public, such strength of vision borne from Nopsiri’s conviction, dedication and energy.   After his first sold out show, Nopsiri has created the second series of abstract teak wood sculptures under the title “Liberation”.   Nopsiri's strength has propelled him into the international spotlight of contemporary recognition.

     In this exhibition “Liberation”, Utai Nopsiri continues his conceptual framework and artistic working process. Instead of using technology or any electricity-related tools, the artist created each sculptural element by hand and his craftsmanship. Viewers can appreciate every detail, having been done in precision and focus.

     “Sometimes when I’ve got some sparkling ideas, I somehow feel a paradox. It is as if I have a dual character, yet, either delicate or rough, the origin is the same”  
6 pieces of wood sculptures will be on view at 100 Tonson Gallery between  May 6th – June 6th ( every Thursday – Sunday, 11 am – 7 pm)
For more information, please contact 100 Tonson Gallery

Artist  Profiles:
Born 1970 in Chachoengsao and lives and works in Nakornphrathom.  Nopsiri graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from Slipakorn University. Nopsiri's work is unique in that his large wooden sculptures are entirely painstakingly handcrafted without the use of electrical tools. He was lifted from obscurity after being discovered working in a tin shed-cum-studio in a bustling market just outside of Bangkok by 100 Tonson Gallery. After putting on his first solo show “ Only Appearance” Nopsiri received a great response from collectors and the art audience at large. Participated in group shows such as Beasts, Breasts & Beauty, Alliance Française Singapore 2008, and Showcase Singapore, in 2009.  He is now tipped to be one of the young up and coming artists to watch.  His awards include 3rd Prize (Sculpture), 51st National Exhibition of Art, Bangkok (2005). 2nd Prize, Krung Thai Bank Award, 52nd National Exhibition of Art, Bangkok (2006). Awards from two years of Toshiba's Brings Good Things to Life Art Competition. Entries selected for exhibit, three years of the National Exhibition of Art, Bangkok.

Day - Night and Day by Nguyen Tan Cuong

D Gallery invites you to the opening cocktail party on 2nd April, 2010
6 PM - 9 PM at Royal Phuket Marina

     "Day-Night and Day presents a nation of time instantiated as a confluence of continuous moments. This facilitates a merging of opposites into a common stream..."

Exhibition:         Day-Night and Day
Artist:               Nguyen Tan Cuong
Medium:           Mixed media on canvas
Venue:             D Gallery, Royal Phuket Marina
Opening Date:  02 April - 30 April, 2010
Contact:           T. 076-360 867 F. 076-360 868,,

     This series of paintings are separate pieces and pieces in one piece. Time in Day–Night and Day contains several moments that continuously run around and mingle all the opposite and contrary aspects in a flow.

     These works do not depict a specific subject or things or person; instead it lets our visionary images and some subtle change in repeated images which just give a feeling like in a half-awake dream and some narratives that can be quietly shared with the viewers.”

     Nguyen Tan Cuong was born in Hanoi, Vietnam in 1953. He currently lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Graduated from the Saigon Fine Arts Collage in 1973, Nguyen Tan Cuong is a master at manipulating light. He builds up a texture on the canvas and then creates dynamic and compelling paintings through rich imagery and texture. He makes much use of rough, natural fibre in his work, which gives them an organic quality that is both visual and tangible. There is a raw elegance and sensuality in this body of work. His work is not entirely abstract yet there are rarely recognizable images.

     He has participated in several exhibitions in Vietnam and also taken part in shows in Japan (1994, 1996), Switzerland (1995), Singapore (1995, 1997), Philippines (1996), Belgium (1997), Korea (1998), Italy (1998), USA (1997, 1998, 2003), England (2006), Canada (2008). His works have been listed in Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts,  Vietnam Fine Art Association in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum and Museo Biblioteca Achivio in Italy.

     The formal opening of the exhibition of 15 new works by Nguyen Thanh Cuong will be on Friday, 2nd April 2010 between 6.00pm and 9.00pm at D Gallery, located within the Royal Phuket Marina. Everybody is welcome.

Coffee-coloured Art of Isan Architecture Collection By Nai Dang Orthao

Coffee-coloured Art of Isan Architecture Collection By Nai Dang Orthao
     Some of you may have heard of paintings with coffee but there are no artist that we know of, who uses coffee to create landscape drawing of Isan architecture, except for Nai Dang Orthao, an artist, writer, and song-writer who wrote many well-known songs for famous artists from Isan province.     

     Today, CICADA Art Factory presents coffee-coloured art collection by Nai Dang Orthao, which was inspired by the beautiful landscape of his hometown, Korat, where he has spent most of his life seeing many stone-castles, which tend have the same colour tone as coffee. Having realized this, he decided to combine his personal painting technique with coffee, creating the art pieces displayed here at the exhibition.      Nai Dang Orthao has also invited Mr. Ralf, Raffaello Somazzi, a Swiss artist who has settle down in Isan for over 10 years, to join the exhibition by displaying his art pieces of "Symbolic" art, which he has been improving on consistently. Mr. Ralf has expressed, "Art is like a friend, a teacher, a book, or a song, every time you look at it you see something new. It makes you feel alive, and everything is connected to art." 

     With the display of coffee-coloured art and symbolic art, anyone planning to visit the exhibition is sure to have a worthwhile trip.      Visit the exhibition of "Coffee-coloured Art of Isan Architecture Collection" by Nai Dang Orthao and "Symbolic Art" by guest artist, Raffaello Somazzi , at CICADA Art Factory, Hua Hin, Prachuapkhirikhan.

     The official opening will be taking place on 13th March 2010, from 06:00 p.m. - 07:00 p.m. The entire exhibition runs from 1st March - 4th April 2010. The studio open from 10:00 a.m. - 07:00 p.m. (Monday - Thursday) and 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. (Friday - Sunday).

BLOW IN by Susu Pianchupattana

"BLOW IN" Art Exhibition by Susu Pianchupattana
      It doesn't matter where you are on this planet, one day you will get a home coming call from your heart that you cannot resist. Susu Pianchupattana, was as far away from home as New York on her 7-year road as an artist.      Today, the wind blows her back to her home, with "Blow In" art exhibition, her very first exhibition in Thailand, which will be displaying all her art collection that she has accumulated for the past 7 years as an aspiring artist.       CICADA Art Factory presents the beauty of the art world, known as "semi-abstract," which is created out of the inspiration of the landscape of places that she has visited, and expressed in her own unique way with the sweet, yet strong colours. This is something that is rare to find and somewhat lacking in Thai female artists.

    "Blow In" art exhibition, was partly inspired by the fact that Susu was the first female artist who lived and worked in CICADA Art Factory, an open space studio that is surrounded by over 100-year old trees. The factory is situated in Hua Hin, under the management of HOF Art Center with the concept of "Artist in Residence." The exhibition is held in an open space, giving the artist the ability to feel air, the spaciousness, and the surrounding nature such as sea and trees. All of which give an inspiration to the landscape, just like the art-pieces exhibited here.

    "Blow In" art exhibition by Susu Pianchupattana  will have the official opening on 13th March 2010, from 06:00 p.m. - 07:00 p.m. at CICADA Art Factory, Hua Hin, Prachuapkhirikhan. The entire exhibition runs from 1st March - 4th April 2010. The studio open from 10:00 a.m. - 07:00 p.m. (Monday - Thursday) and 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. (Friday - Sunday).
