PORTRAITS HOLOGRAPHIQUES PAR UTTAPORN NIMMALAIKAEW

July 12, 2016

L’artiste thaïlandais Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew peint de manière originale sur plusieurs couches de toile, fil et tissu, pour créer des œuvres d’art remarquables en trois dimensions.

Délicates et tout à fait uniques, les peintures ressemblent à des hologrammes chatoyants qui changent subtilement et se transforment selon l’angle de vue. Un visage pensif, mélancolique est au centre de chaque oeuvre. Les sujets translucides apparaissent éthérés et fantomatiques sur ces minces écrans de tissu. Leurs yeux baissés, comme si perdus dans des pensées, les visages réfléchissent à la vie, la mort et d’autres concepts inspirés de la philosophie bouddhiste.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew (b. 1980) is one of Thailand’s most exciting and widely admired new-generation artists. By painting over layers of carefully draped thread and netting, he has developed a unique mixing of media that produces mesmerizing three-dimensional, ‘holographic’ artworks, often portraits of his own family members. A devout Buddhist, Nimmalaikaew’s distinct style illustrates and explains the inevitable cycle of birth, aging, and death in all our lives, as explained in Buddhist philosophy.

One of the most sought after contemporary Thai artists of his generation, Nimmalaikaew’s works are included in private collections worldwide. In 2006, he was awarded the highly prestigious Sovereign Asian Art Prize. He has also been the recipient of numerous awards in Thailand, including the Purchase Prize in the 3rd Bangkok Triennale (2012), and the highly coveted 1st prize in the Thai National Exhibition of Art (2005, 2009). His works have been exhibited in Thailand’s Bangkok Art and Culture Centre and National Gallery.

He currently lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand.
