Supawich Weesapen is at the forefront of a new generation of artists exploring the enduring relevance of technical skills in today’s hyper-digital environments. He works with oil on canvas, making vividly hued images using the RGB colour mode, which is usually used for digital screen displays. He also writes poetry in English and Thai, to explore the philosophical, sublime and metaphorical possibilities that his paintings propose.

What is the future of metaphor? How do digital natives see colour and feel time? Will reading a poem guide us into a painting? Supawich Weesapen makes luminous, eerie and sublime oil paintings that entangle the intersections of theory, poetry, and what he calls "metaphoring." In this conversation, the artist will share his revelatory insights on his process, and its relationship to contemporary experience. [more info]
