PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF
Hello I am Pim, Pimlada Phuapradit, Thai artist and textile designer living and working in NYC.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?
My series of personal works are based on the juxtaposition of broken objects, abandoned places, characters of unknown persons, hybrids and insects.
PLEASE SHARE WITH US YOUR WORKING PROCESS
I rely on the same process of drawing as I drew when I was a child.
Follow the instinct and let the fracture of vague ideas grow.
HOW DOES YOUR ENVIRONMENT INFLUENCE YOUR ART?
I love the energy of the city. Quite often, I find balance from quietly making drawings.
WHO ARE YOUR INFLUENCES?
- Hieronymus Bosch
- Edvard Munch
- William Morris
- and the director Jan Svankmajer
ANY LAST WORD?
Blank paper is a playground.
