Save Thai Buffalo and New Mosaic series by Maitree Siriboon

From 30 June to 15 August 2016

YenakArt Villa

YenakArt Villa

Bangkok - Thailand

Presentation

The series is featuring the albino buffalo Maitree Siriboon is raising in his home-town, painted with the natural colors used in India for the sacred cows, underlining, with a strong sense of humor, that the buffalo is playing a new "decorative" role in contemporary Thailand.

This series is paying tribute to the buffalo, which helped build Thailand into a rice-farming nation, and therefore into the modern nation it is today. But now, regrets Maitree, you hardly see buffaloes working in rice-fields. On each photo, the painting on the buffalo is inspired by a famous modern artwork or artist that Maitree preferred when visiting the western museums expressing the "cultural shock" he had when he came back to his village after his first long trip to Europe.

In addition to the full series of Save Buffalo photos, Maitree Siriboon will exhibit 7 of his mosaic artworks and especially one of very big size, the Issaan Tree (600x300cm).
