Rockhampton Museum of Art: Collection Focus

by Vipoo Srivilasa
It is a good chance for our artist Vipoo Srivilasa to show his artworks at Rockhampton Museum of Art, Australia from 13 August 2022 until 12 February 2023.
A Thai-born Australian artist skilfully creates figures from porcelain and earthenware that represent his cross-cultural identity. The sculptures are brought to life and disarm viewers through their character-filled faces and teddy bear-like bodies, while carrying messages of diversity and a love for nature. Drawn from the Rockhampton Museum of Art Collection and recent works from the artist’s H̄mī bupp̄hā (flower bear) series, these ceramics show Srivilasa’s dedication to spreading hope through art and cuteness.
