Clubnapralan is a group of mainly Bangkok based artists who have
organized exhibitions to promote Thai arts in ASEAN held their second annual
“Vacation Art Exhibition” at Chiang Mai University Arts Center. The
exhibition features the works of 33 different artists with a great variety
of mediums. The vivid portrait of trout was a digital print on canvas, a 3D
metalwork sculpture, solid fiberglass, woodblock prints, acrylic and oils,
and large wooden sculptures showed the great creativity of the Thai arts
Tharatip Nateesu with his
Bangkok Banana Uprising series.
Tharatip Nateesu featured his Bangkok Banana uprising
works which featured Thai Bananas in with no fancy packaging or marketing
rising up against overly packaged and heavily marketed expensive Japanese
bananas purchased at Narita airport. With a whistle and Thai flags along
with a few other things, the bananas were clearly a metaphor but for which
side I hesitated to ask!
The exhibition is open until January 31 at CMU Arts Center on Nimmanhaemin
Road, the Center is open Tuesdays – Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
