ATTA ‘N’ ATTA Art Space is happy to announce a solo exhibition “I Am a Good Online Shopper, So I Try To Be a Good Painter 2” by a Thai painter Supapong Laodheerasiri. The opening reception will be held on the 26th of November between 18:00-20:00 hrs. The gallery will be open till 23:00 hrs on that day due to Galleries’s Nights.
I Am a Good Online Shopper, So I Try To Be a Good Painter 2 is a solo art exhibition of Supapong Laodheerasiri that presents paintings and installation art. In the exhibition, corrugated fibreboards from used postal boxes and used packages that came from online shopping were used to be main materials for creating paintings, which could refer to the rapid growth of E-commerce during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, basic stationery items also were used to be part of artworks, particularly cloth tapes, which have been used for marking points to keep social distancing or physical distancing in many places since the outbreak of COVID-19. Therefore, the exhibition could reflect the use of used materials, cheap materials or ordinary materials to create artworks, which is the economical artistic creation in the current economic crisis caused by the pandemic of COVID-19 and also could reflect the state of the economy and social situations in the present. Furthermore, the exhibition also could pose questions about the value between used materials, cheap materials or ordinary materials and artworks.
Supapong Laodheerasiri was born in Chiang Rai, Thailand in 1985. He graduated with Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting (First Class Honours) from Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2009 and graduated with Master of Fine Art with Merit from The Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom in 2018. In addition, he is currently a lecturer at Department of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Art, and Design, King Mongkutʼs Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), Bangkok, Thailand. Furthermore, he is also a multidisciplinary artist, who usually uses various mediums to create artworks, for example, painting, mixed media, installation art and text-based art. Most of his artworks focus on questions about perceptions, interpretations, definitions, ambiguities of meanings and understanding that relate to social issues. His artworks have been exhibited nationally and internationally such as United Kingdom, Germany, South Korea and Taiwan.
