Flavours, offers a tantalising taste of Thailand’s vibrant burgeoning contemporary art scene, from the end of the last century to the dawn of a new millennium. While the international image of Thailand as a tropical playground, rich in history and traditional heritage, has been widely publicised through exotic images in the media, little is still known about the human face of modern Thai society.
The book begins with an extensive overview of recent developments, highlighting particular issues, trends, and events that have played a role in shaping the art of today. It also features career profiles of 23 of the country’s established and emerging young artists, with thematic descriptions, more than 80 colour illustrations, and revealing insights from the artists themselves.
Author Steven Pettifor provides us with a clear and concise assessment of the present artistic climate. A keen observer of Thai art’s growing international accreditation, he writes with direct and accessible language.
