A Thai born, Melbourne-based artist, curator and arts activist, Vipoo Srivilasa works predominantly in ceramics, exploring culture shifts and migration experiences. His work is a playful blend of historical Figurative and Decorative art practices with a healthy dose of Contemporary Culture.

Using blue and white colour, he creates complex narratives through highly decorated images applied to the surfaces of ceramic forms. His work requires an intimacy in which the key elements of the drama are often found in unusual places within the forms themselves.

Vipoo has exhibited internationally and loves creating opportunities for artists to collaborate through community based art projects. His work is held in various public art collections including The National Gallery of Australia.
