Mit Jai Inn

Senior Thai artist Mit Jai Inn (b. 1960) deliberately creates multi-coloured abstract works that hover between painting and sculpture, never quite fitting into either category. Made with oil paint and pigment on un-stretched canvas, the colourful pieces curl and unfurl in undulating waves from the ceiling and spiral across the floor, reminiscent of banners or Chinese scrolls. For Mit, the use of ‘painting’ as a way of communicating his personal views on art and life, as well as the social and political implications of making art, are all key aspects of his practice.
