Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition Disparity — showcasing recent paintings by Jirapat Tatsanasomboon. 

Opening Reception is on Saturday, 24 October 2015 from 17.00

In a new series of work, Jirapat Tatsanasomboon comes back with a new Ramakien Pop series. This time, he delves deep into the contrastive characters of two well-known figures in the Thai appropriation and expansion of the Indian epic Ramayana. Pitting Nonthok against Hanuman—the former permanently awkward and the latter endlessly suave—Jirapat is, once again, referencing the current Thai political affairs. While one side—with his unquestionable allegiance to Rama and the favourable turn of the tide—always come across impressively, the other ends up a perpetual wrongdoer. The artist’s choice to attend to these two well-known Ramakien figures as stock rather than round characters, in this series, points to the superficiality and unsustainability of the current political situation.
