Thaweesak Srithongdee: left "Sex" right "Love"

Thaweesak Srithongdee, or Lolay as he is commonly known, is a thirty year old artist from Thailand.  His style echoes the influence of Surrealism and Pop Art. Lolay is a keen observer of people, their physical and mental characteristics. Having previously engineered a spurious race of Adonic, pectoral defined, super-beings that played with perceptions of body image Lolay expands his fascination with the human condition to question our existence and ultimate survival. Bruises and scars bear the physical trace of individual fallibility, but they also provoke assumptions as to the history and determiners behind such inflictions. A selection of Lolay's work will be on view at an exhibition, entitled Bruised, the Thavibu Gallery in Bangkok, Thailand from September 17 to October 15.
