On Wednesday 9 November,Theekawut Boonvijit, a well known practising Thai Artist; who teaches at Silpakorn University in Bangkok, visited us. He talked about his own work, a short history of Contemporary Thai Art and ran an Art Workshop with the Year 11, 12 and 13 Art classes where he encouraged the students to work from their imagination to create pieces of work with interesting imagery and meaning. They also explored different techniques to create textures using spray paint and marker pen and then experimented with collage and mixed media, based on the work of Surreal Artists such as Renee Magritte. The workshop was extremely interesting and successful and, after it had finished, the Year 13’s had the opportunity to interview the artist about his own work, practice and ideas.
