Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition Bruised with new acrylic paintings on canvas by Thaweesak Srithongdee.
Having previously engineered a spurious race of Adonic, pectoral defined, super-beings that played with perceptions of body image, Thaweesak or Lolay as he is better known, expands his fascination with the human condition to question our existence and ultimate survival. Bruises and scars bear the physical trace of individual fallibility, but they also provoke assumptions as to the history and determiners behind such inflictions.
Thaweesak Srithongdee is 41 years old and one of Thailand's most internationally recognized artists. He is well known as a painter and illustrator, but has recently also ventured into video and producing sculptures. He has participated in numerous exhibitions in Thailand and abroad, including a residency at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Japan in 2005, the Fukuoka Triennale, in the 2009 Jakarta Biennale, Indonesia and the 2010 Busan Biennale, Korea.
