Isan Boy Dream Selected Works By Maitree Siriboon


Maitree Siriboon was born in 1983 in Ubon Ratchatani, a province in the north eastern Isarn region of Thailand. He moved to Bangkok at the age of fifteen to study, first at the College of Fine Art at Ladkrabang and later at Silpakorn University where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art. Maitree is a recipient of numerous national awards among them The Bangkok Bank Art Award in 2006 .

His early collage work is influenced by his childhood in Isarn transforming half-forgotten memories into colorful abstractions of rural life/

More recently, Maitree turned to contemporary photography. His first series Isarn Boy Dream invites foreigners to his childhood home Nong-Bo, placing them against characteristic village backdrops. Isarn Boy Soi 4 examines, in an idealized fashion, the experience of rural youth transplanted to a big cosmopolitan city and addresses an underlying motif of sex labor. 

Most recently, in Albino & Green and in Dream of Beyond, Maitree develops a sensuous and sometimes mystical treatment of models and water buffalos in idyllic pastoral settings.

SUNDAY JULY 19th at Maggie Choo's we will showcase the selected photographic works from throughout Maitree's life for a very special edition of "The Importance of Being Ernest" with Moët & Chandon. Additional treats include:

Open Bar: 7:30 - 9:30pm

Your music for the night: DJ Fred Canal
