on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with
sculptor Vipoo Srivilasa. After immigrating from Thailand to
Australia Vipoo has used ceramic sculpture to explore the
similarities between his native and adoptive cultures. Over the
past 16 years Vipoo has developed a body of porcelain figurines
that mixes the blue and white traditions of East Asia with
contemporary symbols of Australian identity. His work has
been described as "a
playful blend of historical Figurative and Decorative art practices
with a health dose of Contemporary Culture."
In this two-part interview we discuss the artist ego, the gallery system, and breaking into the international art market. For more information about Vipoo's work please visit www.vipoo.com.
