Korakrit Arunanondchai

Following a brush with fame as a teenage hip-hop star, artist Krit Arunanondchai has emerged to become a serious player in the global contemporary arts scene. A pupil of legendary Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, Krit is much in demand these days. Recent career highlights include participating in the 9th Berlin Biennale in 2016 and working on a solo exhibition at C L E A R I N G gallery in New York. And there’s no let up for this founding member of the Thai art collective known as Chantri. In the coming months he will be exhibiting at Kiasma Museum in Helsinki, working with collaborators including performance artist Boychild, video artist Alex Gvojic, music producer Aaron David Ross and artist Michael Potvin, and producing an Internet-TV documentary.
