Yavuz Gallery presents Mit Jai Inn in his first solo exhibition in Singapore. Entitled Patchworlds, the show comprises a series of iconic works, many exhibited for the first time in Singapore, and new paintings created for the exhibition. In form and function, the works on view in Patchworlds exemplify Mit’s decidedly unorthodox approach to art.
Based in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, Mit Jai Inn (b. 1960) is a seminal figure in Thai contemporary art. In the late 1980s, he lived in Vienna, Austria, where he studied at the University of Applied Arts and worked in the studio of renowned abstract artist Franz West. Upon his return to Thailand in 1992, Mit co-founded the Chiang Mai Social Installation, an art project and festival that moved art out of its traditional institutional and commercial confines and onto the city’s streets, with an emphasis on the public and the participatory.
