Researched on mixed media

The artists that I have been looking for inspirations are Urs Fischer, Jose Lgnacio Romussi Murphy, and Son of Jumbo (Khachonyot Yaempradit).

Firstly, Urs Fischer, he is a Swiss contemporary artist who lives in New York. He had his first exhibition in Zurich in 1996 after 3 years when he moved to Amsterdam. His subversive approach to art is considered to be influenced by anti-art movements like Neo-Dada, Lost Art, or the Situationist International. He has his own publishing imprint, Kiito-San, whose books are distributed by DAP and Buchhandlung Walther Konig.

Secondly, Jose Ignacio Romussi Murphy, a Chilean-born artist, who adds a serious flair to vintage photos which he has collected with his colourful needlework. Embroidering art on pictures is nothing new, but Jose makes his artworks comes alive a second time. He mostly uses black and white photograph, dancers or fashion models as the subject matter.

Lastly, Son of Jumbo or Khachonyot Yaempradit, a young Thai contemporary artist who spends most of his life in Thailand, but had a chance to travel the world and had an experience working in Milan, Italy by his own talent. He was born in Uthai-Thani, but moved to Bangkok for studying, and described himself as a stranger. Additionally, he wrote a book name “Stranger in Bangkok,” which was just recently published in Thailand, expressing his own thoughts about how is it like to be a stranger in Bangkok through the book itself. His inspirations mostly comes from his travelling.
