In the frame of its “Art & Culture Series”, The Pavilions Phuket presents its first exhibition “The Language of Art”, a selection of eight local and international artists.
This exhibition will offer you the opportunity to discover the artwork of Mr Zen, a prolific Thai painter who takes a critical look at the world around him. He is the owner of the Wua Art Gallery & Studio on Phang Nga Road in Phuket Town, where visitor can discover some of his paintings. Originally from southern Thailand, Map Abday creates abstract acrylic paint on canvas and takes her main inspiration from nature, old books and magazines, as well as her inner self. Adriano Trapani is an Italian expat living in Phuket, where he is famous for his fashion shoots and underwater photographies. Phuketian by adoption, the Swiss Marlene Jacopin will present porcelain paintings with some techniques she has developed through her travels around the world. In our digital era, lettering on signs tends to disappear, but British Peter Child remains one of the few working sign-writers left, whose work can be found all over the island in hotels, restaurants and bars. The Thai artist Isara Thaothong defines his artwork as “Modern Doodle Art”, a style integrating line patterns – doodles – with signs and symbols. Isara get his inspiration mainly from the happy memories, joys and dreams of his childhood. Last but not least, Australian artists raised in Thailand John and Zachary Underwood use their creativity to offer interactive and humorous, even sarcastic, works. A wide panel of artists, all of whom have a link with Thailand.
