Mit Jai Inn – New Paintings
H Gallery and Eat Me are very pleased to present a new series of paintings by Mit Jai Inn. Mit has emerged as one of Thailand’s leading artists with a practice that shifts from lushly painted surfaces to site-specific and participatory installations.
This new series comprises both large and small canvases with Mit’s characteristic repetition of bold passages of color and the physicality of the works – both in scale and heavily-worked surfaces – begets metaphoric and mythic interest. The surfaces of Mit’s paintings strike a hypnotic note and their presence is all-encompassing.
Mit Jai Inn is based in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand and exhibits internationally. Mit lived in Europe during the 80s where he worked with the renowned artist Franz West and also attended the Academia of Angewandte Kunst. Exhibitions include biennales in Singapore and Sydney, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and regional solo exhibitions including Phnom Penh.
