Tell us extra in regards to the artist and his distinctive model of labor.
Jitti Jumnianwai is a well-liked Thai modern artist based mostly out of Bangkok. He is most affectionately identified for his character “Jittirobot” which as its identify suggests, is the robotic protagonist that brings us via his tales and voyages. What attracts collectors and galleries alike is the constructive vibes and cheerful demeanor through which the works are depicted, creating considerably ironic but heartwarming episodes of a robotic displaying or encountering feelings — and reminding its viewers on the heat and hope this world possesses.
How did you first come throughout the artist?
I first met Jitti again in 2019 in a Hotel Art Fair in Bangkok. He was exhibiting a variety of works from canvas, to illustrated skateboards and small robotic toys. What drew me to the works was not solely the light-heartedness and constructive power of the character, but in addition the truth that his artwork was direct and appealed spontaneously to each the thoughts and the guts. I suppose that struck me instantly as a novice artwork collector and at that time, it spurred me to gather and extra importantly, begin working collectively on showcasing his works to a wider viewers. It comes as no shock that my first ever art work buy was from Jitti in his artwork studio a few days later.
What sparked this collaboration between 333 Gallery and All About Art?
“This exhibition has been a very long time coming, and in some sense I really feel like all issues have come full circle (albeit a smaller one) for my artwork journey thus far,” stated Jitti. We represented Jitti and his works in Singapore for a short while previous to him signing with essentially the most outstanding Thai gallery 333 Gallery. Where most gallerists would concur that is most frequently a signaling of the “finish of a relationship”, a lot quite the opposite, it was the beginning of a really profitable partnership and now relationship between all 3 events. Jitti was rising in stature domestically in Thailand via 333 Gallery, and when it was time to contemplate his abroad exhibition — he solely needed to work with us. We work very intently with the homeowners Khun Land and Khun Nan about leveraging on our assets to make this present a powerful success.
What was the primary thought behind the exhibition them “Life In Space”
The scriptures of life or “Tao Te Ching”, as soon as train us “Shape clay right into a vessel, however it’s the vacancy inside that holds rice and fish.” Jitti needed to discover the idea of External Cosmos – Internal Cosmos. In his phrases, “We are enveloped by the expansive exterior world, an unlimited expanse on our planet that may be perceived via sight and sound, sending sensations to our internal cosmos (the thoughts), the place they’re saved based on the passage of time. What does the receptacle for these feelings resemble? Perhaps it’s a sq. container that, when stuffed to capability, releases its contents, abandoning some residue that represents deep-rooted recollections.” We have interaction in actions that possess tangible types, but it’s the intangible that we really make the most of. Thus, the tales, experiences, and feelings layered upon each other inside numerous containers could maintain some worth as we proceed our journey via life. However, it’s equally important to acknowledge that, finally, life may be nothing greater than an empty container. When time involves a halt, it could possibly be enlightening to reassess the importance of our existence throughout the exterior cosmos and the inner cosmos (the thoughts).
