    Picture-perfect

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 01/06/2016

    » Bangkok-based Japanese artist Soichiro Shimizu's latest exhibition, "Re-Looks", is a re-look both at his own art practice and at fellow artists he admires. Currently displayed in the elegant, well-lit YenarkArt Villa is a series of photographs which appear to have gone through practically almost every Photoshop function -- cropped, stretched, resized and collaged -- to the point of total abstraction.

    NYC attitude in BKK

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 30/03/2016

    » The thing is Korakrit Arunanondchai is coming to town. And whether you love or hate the denim-clad, fiery-haired New York-based artist, it's very likely that, starting this weekend, he will be pretty much taking over the Bangkok art scene.

    Fun hits and misses

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 24/02/2016

    » The award for best art exhibition opening reception this month goes to café/gallery Counting Sheep Corner on Sukhumvit 61 with Thomas Carrigan's paintings. Despite the fact that it was the bland Singha Light instead of the much-loved original, we had nothing to complain about because the free-flow started before 6pm and continued until late.

    Wonderwalls and more

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 27/01/2016

    » Since we have yet to find an art school for, or exhibitions by, the much-hyped angel child dolls, Art Matters this month is going to make do with the same old current show round-up.

    A calendar for the 99.3%

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/01/2016

    » New year is for new beginnings. This is as much a cliché as it is true. While it is just a new day, we carry the illusion that comes with Jan 1. The past is suddenly forgiven and forgotten, a clean slate: new hobbies, new goals, new habits, new lives, and, of course, new calendars. Now, the first week of January is already over, and if you are still in search for the right calendar to guide you through the year, there's never a more fun place to search for one than our beloved country, Thailand.

    The surreal world we live in

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 18/12/2015

    » As the festive time draws near, with Christmas and the New Year, it's not only a time for celebrating and looking ahead, but looking at where we have been and where we are right now. But while the future is all imagination -- all your New Year's resolutions are possibly delusional and bogus -- what's real and inarguable is the past and the now, as we breathe and try to get through the day. Let's not get personal about this as there are plenty of other occasions to talk about your plans to do yoga more regularly, cut down on cigarettes or be nicer to other people.

    Art without hostility

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 18/11/2015

    » Thepnara Kongsawang was uncomfortable elaborating on how he was punished by his drill sergeants during his one-year conscription at a military camp. What's done is done, the 28-year-old artist said, and his art was never meant as an act of hostility against the military in any way. It's simply a set of works designed to make comments and poke fun.

    An experimental sensibility

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 28/10/2015

    » This month's Art Matters begins with rather worrying news for H Gallery. After a visit to a photography show by Kornkrit Jianpinidnan, which just opened last Saturday at Bangkok Citycity Gallery, one fact hit me hard: Tam, H Gallery's dog in residency, may not be the only contender for the cutest canine in the capital's art scene.

    The food stylist

    Muse, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 12/09/2015

    » Paweethida Tanjasiri's som tum doesn’t look like any we’ve ever seen before. Her chops of string beans are of a purplish hue and the sliced tomatoes vary in colour. Along with the usual beans and dried shrimps, corn kernels, pomegranate seeds and slices of beetroot are dotted against the white wide-rim plate. Fear not, the 26-year-old is not a radical, nor an antinationalist trying to undermine what has long been part of our culinary identity, however, but a food stylist.
