The Toot Yung Art Centre based in Chiang Mai, Thailand will be the guest of the “Atelier Kao” in June 2017 for an exceptional showcase of Thai artist Haritorn Akarapat. A selection of major bronze sculptures and latest paintings will be presented for 5 days in the heart of the Marais in Paris.
The celebrated sculptor Haritorn Akarapat (Born 1961) explores his passionate interest in concepts of time as they can relate to Buddhist thought. A graduate of Thailand’s prestigious Silpakorn University, Akarapat has developed a unique approach to patina for bronze sculpture. The artist uses vivid colors and seems to almost purify the sensual and demiurgic aspect of clay moulding. References to liturgical rituals can be found in Akarapat’s use of liquid and fire in his processes. Ultimately, a sense of erosion provides a path to insight and, essentially, wisdom.
Exhibition Opening : Thursday June 15th at 6pm
