ART EXHIBITION: Pakpoom Silaphan Shows London the "Empire State"
Pakpoom Silaphan has a very interesting concept of using prints vs illustration vs metal and I have to say I need a few of these pieces in my house.
Pakpoom Silaphan was born in 1972 in Bangkok, Thailand. He received his BFA from Silapakorn University in Bangkok before moving to England in 2002 to study printmaking at Camberwell College of Art and a Masters in Fine Art which he received from Chelsea College of Art and Design.
Silaphan’s work has been placed in the Hiscox Collection, Sir Paul Smith’s collection and has been featured in the significant publication “For Which It Stands: Americana in Contemporary Art” by Carla Sakamoto, published by Farameh Media in 2012. In 2004 he was shortlisted for the John Moore’s 23 prize at the Liverpool Museum. Silaphan has exhibited in Japan, Hong Kong, New York and has shown in Singapore and India this year. Silaphan has been recently featured in the Financial Times, The Independent and The Sunday Times.
Guess what? he has an exhibition here in London and it's one not to miss. details after the jump.
