Vipoo Srivilasa is the Winner of the 29th Gold Coast International Ceramic Art Award ($10k prize) with his exquisite piece 'Battle of Old and New Power', created from hundreds of handmade porcelain petals covering a pair of buffaloes.
"Buffaloes have always played an integral part in Thai culture and Thai society. The worst insult in Thai language is to be called "Buffalo" as this animal is seen as slow, stupid and stubborn.!
Battle Of Old and New Power is my response to Bangkok Red Shirt and Yellow Shirt protest and fight in the recent years"...Vipoo Srivilasa.
The exhibition is on from 6 Sept-26 Oct at The Arts Centre, Gold Coast
