Thai textile art making a potent point

18 Oct 2013

“With a simple technique and an age-old tradition that’s more associated with craft, Thai artist Jakkai Siributr is keen to push textile art to the next level. Not in terms of design, but with the use of textile as a medium for contemporary art.”
