Thinkspace Projects presents:
Aof Smith ‘Vibration’
‘Vibration’ from Aof Smith takes over Gallery III, our sophomore solo exhibition with the Thailand based artist. The Bangkok-based contemporary artist expresses his perception and imagination through the limitless possibilities of Pop-surrealism.
With lovable characters that create whimsical scenarios and dynamics, Smith balances an innate dark humor with lighter, brighter elements. Drawing inspiration from manga, science fiction, and other art forms, Smith creates the unique creatures he calls “Furries.” These fantastical characters are rendered in complex detail, often accompanied by unsettling elements like lit fuses and missiles, reflecting Smith’s satirical take on modern society.
Environmental consciousness is a driving force behind his art. In a world struggling with consumerism and waste, Smith contemplates what legacy humanity will leave for future generations. Smith’s goal for the future is simple yet ambitious: to continue creating, fueled by a commitment to his artistic vision.
