May 8 saw the opening of MADSAKI’s first solo art show in Bangkok, held at Central Embassy in collaboration with Kaikai Kiki Gallery and Galerie Perrotin. The exhibition, titled ‘Combination Platter’, is also the largest public installation by the Japanese artist to date, featuring a comprehensive expression of the various styles he is known for. Central Embassy's ground floor saw a gathering of society's biggest fans of contemporary art, such as Dr Disaphol Chansiri, Ploy Chariyaves and Petch Osathanugrah, for the chance to see the artist's work up-close before anyone else in Thailand, as well as meet the artist, who was flown in to preside over the launch personally.
The exhibition up for viewing now until June 3, the highlights of 'Combination Platter' include a five-metre tall totem sculpture and a 13-metre long mural of iconic cartoons. Also catch MADSAKI's signature for spray-painting drippy smiley faces on iconic images. And, if you're lucky, there might still be a few pieces of limited edition MADSAKI merch available for purchase at Siwilai Store.
