Phuket Arts: Diary of budding existentialists – part 2

PHUKET: Three more budding artists from a recent BIS Visual Arts class discuss their work, currently being exhibited at the school until Friday March 29 (click here for part 1).

By Sariya Suwannakarn: The ‘Phuket Vegetarian Festival’, in which we pray for good fortune, and go through ten days of adhering to a strict vegetarian diet for the purposes of merit making and spiritual cleansing, includes many aesthetic displays, sacred ritual performances and parades around Phuket Town.

By Maria Isabelle Becker: My views of the natural environment, modern society, body image and the influence of the media are prevailing themes presented in my work. I mainly observe the human form from portraits to full-body figures and as a result of this I have developed a fascination and passion for drawing and painting the human anatomy, facial expressions and eyes in particular.

By: Lolita Shestakova: I used Salvador Dali’s technique of reflection in my own surreal painting entitled “Layan beach“. The subtle white line-work on the water indicates the light being reflected of the smooth surface. I balanced the colors evenly, which allows the mood of the painting to be very harmonious. I believe that many people living in Thailand have a strong bond with the water.

The IB Year 13 Visual Arts Exhibition is proudly sponsored by the Phuket Gazette, PGTV and the nationally televised ‘Phuket Today‘ show on True Visions.

Phuket Today‘, co-produced by PGTV and MCOT World, will be covering this event. The weekly half-hour show runs eight times a week, every week, on channels 99 and 58.
