"German Expressionism and the Bangkok Night" at FCCT, Friday, Oct 19th
The talk coincides with the Opening/Launch of my "Paintings from the Bangkok Night" exhibition at FCCT which will be running from October 15th thru November 14th.
7pm, Friday, October 19, 2012
Chris Coles is an artist and filmmaker who divides his time between Bangkok and the coast of Maine. He is one of the first artists to explore the chaotic and ambiguous world of the Bangkok Night. His paintings, in the Expressionist style, are jagged and emotional portraits, revealing a raw and primitive layer of the human experience. A book of his paintings, "Navigating the Bangkok Noir", was recently published by Marshall Cavendish Singapore.
As part of the art show's Opening Night, Chris will give a short talk regarding the origins and style of his work titled, "German Expressionism and the Bangkok Night".
Philip Cornwel-Smith, author of VERY THAI and Founding Editor of Bangkok Metro Magazine, will introduce Chris and provide some thoughts on Bangkok's nightlife as a source and inspiration for art, music, literature and movies.
The FCCT exhibition runs from October 16 to November 14.
"Navigating the Bangkok Noir" is available at Kinokuniya and Asia Books stores, and also via the Internet (Bt500 to Bt600 baht, depending upon the supplier).
