Biography

Pakpoom Silaphan

Silaphanʼs practice examines notions of globalisation, mass consumerism and the universal reach of cultural icons across the world. Primarily, Silaphan searches for found-objects such as old metal advertising signs to use throuhgout his work. He also uses vintage wooden Pepsi and Coca-Cola crates, reminiscent of Warholʼs Brillo Box installations. He then re-works these found-objects to create a fresh interpretation of Pop Art and opens a discourse on the effects of advertising and mass consumption.

The infiltration of western imagery and ideology had a profound influence on Silaphanʼs understanding of the West and on his artistic practice. Using his favoured artistic icons, such as Warhol, Dali and Frida Khalo, he collages and paints over these branded advertising signs and crates, implying the artistsʼ identity as a recognised global brand itself. Silaphan creates an engaging dialogue between the relationship between East and West, and the universal language of signs and symbols that is accessible to all and has been imprinted on to the universal collective consciousness.
