Highlights of the exhibition are beautiful products of collaboration among regional members, such as the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

Each country has its unique ways of transforming local materials into beautiful works of handicraft. Such are taking place within the ASEAN region, where member countries have come together and integrated their efforts in a project called “Improving the Current Status of ASEAN Master Craft Designers.” They also reached out to collaborate with other experts in the field.

An eye-catching object of handicraft is the product of collaboration with Peruvian’s designer Nelson Sepulveda. The design is pure and simple with a naive charm. Rough natural textures are preserved. Sepulveda recycles local wastes, i.e. coconut leaves, pineapple-fiber papers and abaca plants. It’s amazing how he develops found materials into furniture that fits in well with contemporary lifestyle and residential spaces.

This year, Budij Layug has put on another interesting exhibition in the Philippines. His selections and perspectives not only offer home décor items, but also fuse with fashionable influences. Equally intriguing are “Lucent Objects,” a design exhibition by the Design Center of the Philippines in association with Stanley Ruiz. Here lampshades are produced from different natural materials. A lovely touch of creativity comes in the form of a lampshade made of fiber from the coconut shell. The ingenious design aims to reduce adverse effects on the environment. In the process, toxic chemicals are avoided as best as possible.

Expressing Sadness and Loss through Art

Expressing Sadness and Loss through Art

During this time of loss, Silpakorn art students have been expressing their sadness with some impressive paintings.

Sometimes sadness simply must be expressed. Students from the faculty of painting, sculpture and graphic arts, Silpakorn University are responding to the passing of King Bhumibol with rare and unique originality.

While many have been unremittingly mourning in black, a total of 60 students found solace in their profession and spent three whole days painting portraits of HM the King.

Under “The Great Artist” theme, they painted nine portraits of King Bhumibol to hang on the University’s fence and put one large portrait of him on the University’s exterior wall.

Their love and respect toward King Rama IX is expressed with creativity. Each picture shows the King in a different pose, each related to his wisdom and ability in one of many fields: music, photography, sport, and so on. Sadness is depicted through colors. All these portraits of King Bhumibol were drawn and painted in Sepia tones against colored backgrounds.

As the saying goes, people grief differently, indeed.
