About the Artist
He has interest in beauty in ugliness and silliness. Most of his ceramics forms are rough, ugly chaotically imperfect maybe this is wabi-sabi excuse for him that there is a beauty behind the impermanent and imperfection
With the idea of wabi-sabi in mind. We may learn a great (inner) satisfaction in a humble moments. He uses pinch technique for a personal touch on his ceramic to get an intimacy irregularity and unpretentious.
He often using forms like toys, organic ornament, and random things he found on the internet as his perspective on his banal daily life that he lives, He believes that the world is just an amusement, diversion, and adornment.
Sometimes he adds wordplay like, spoof of something, slip of tongue, misheard quotes to tell that all his whole life is a joke.
TheTip is a pair of twins of micro galleries with different birthdates. One of them in Bangkok, Thailand and its older brother residing in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The exhibition platform is operated by Lars Karl Becker and hosted by Tentacles/N22 in Bangkok, but far beyond that it relies on a loose network of contributors involving a myzel of (skipped) plans and tales of the joy of collaborating.
