Bangkok, 08 November 2021—Over the Influence is excited to announce the opening of our Bangkok gallery location with American artist Todd James’ debut exhibition CLEAN JELLYBEAN on view from 20 November 2021 to 10 January 2022.

CLEAN JELLYBEAN features paintings that elaborate on the artist’s visual vocabulary punctuated by surreal interiors, geopolitical scenes, and candid portraits of women, all rendered in vibrant, saturated palettes with abstract forms. The new series of works are displayed throughout the 5-storey gallery by themes, thereby allowing viewers a colorful introduction into James’ evolution as an artist and observe firsthand the key motifs and colors that define his unique vision.

Artist Bio

Todd James began his art career in the New York City subway system of the early 1980s, and through his adolescent graffiti work mastered the practical challenges of good design at an early age. James is a co-creator of Street Market, a major work of the post-graffiti movement that was selected for the 2001 Venice Biennale. In 2011, a re-creation of this work was the central installation of LA MOCA’s record breaking exhibition, Art in the Streets. His paintings and installations have been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. In the commercial art world James has collaborated with artists including Iggy Pop, The Beastie Boys, U2, Eminem, and Pharrell Williams. He lives in New York City.

Over the Influence Bangkok

Over the Influence Bangkok is located in Talat Noi, Bangkok’s historic Samphanthawong neighbourhood filled with temples, museums, and artisanal shops and restaurants.

The gallery is located in front of a city landmark that was built as a ‘Gateway’ with Chinese architectural details to signify the multicultural relationship between the Chinese and Thai community living in Samphanthawong district. The Chao Phraya River which is the heart of the city is walking distance from the gallery too.

This marks the 3rd international location for the gallery, while simultaneously highlighting the shift in paradigm in Southeast Asia to develop professional resources and grow the contemporary art community. OTI BKK’s landmark presence in the city promises a new direction in the role of contemporary art galleries by increasing international awareness to Thailand’s rich artistic identity and contemporary culture.
