Arty-Fact: "When I was a child growing up in rural Thailand, I was surrounded by Coke, Pepsi and Fanta advertising signs without realising they were part of Western culture. Over time, these signs formed an iconic corporate 'wallpaper' that was to become intrinsically linked with my childhood environment. Later in my life, when I was living in Bangkok, I started collecting these signs to remind me of my childhood, and when I returned to Thailand after a decade long hiatus studying fine art in London, I saw my collection in a completely different light, for the first time seeing that they were every bit as embedded in popular culture as the artists I had been studying in London - and from that, a new series was conceived. The signs I use as a canvas and the artists that populate them are figures I admire, but are also emblematic of this influence and convergence of Eastern and Western cultures." ~ Pakpoom Silaphan
