Selfie Series

Selfie Series
Kraipit Phanvut

Chumpol Kamwanna's Selfie Series (เซลฟี่ ซีรีย์) exibition opened yeaterday at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, and runs until 30th October. Chumpol's paitings recreate news photographs of the 6th October 1976 massacre, though he has added his own image to each one, posed while using his smartphone to take a selfie. The painting that appears on the exhibition poster is a parody of photojournalist Kraipit Phanvut's image of police colonel Watcharin Niamvanichkul aiming his gun while nonchalently smoking a ciragette.
