Opening of Hope Land at Suvannabhumi Head High Gallery
Opening of Hope Land, a solo exhibition by BAPHOBOY, at Suvannabhumi Head High Gallery. The exhibition is on display until 4 December 2021.
Sippakorn Khiaosanthia also known as Baphoboy (born 1995) is an artist from Bangkok. He finished his studies at Silpakorn University Bangkok and graduated with a Bachelor of Art degree (Graphic Arts). He recently took the web by storm with his poignant satirical and enigmatic smiley figures. It was an immediate success, and since then his rapid ascension brought him to be selected for Pictoplasma Berlin 2021, the most important international conference and festival about contemporary character design. His current work, mostly digital paintings, tell a lot about present-day Thailand.
Baphoboy`s work portrays his daily struggle and stress in dealing with news and politics. The COVID Pandemic is also on display in his work as its impact has sharpened and shaped his views in many ways. The paintings come with characters in beautifully colored setting, but their smiles seem frozen and the scene is often violent and sexually charged.
Suvannabhumi Head High Gallery is located on Huay Kaew Road, opposite Kad Suan Kaew Shopping Center. The gallery is open from Tuesday until Sunday from 11am until 7pm.
