A Portuguese artist with an intriguing name, Wasted Rita will present her thought-provoking scribbles in the exhibition “10795 days of Bummer” at the WTF Cafe & Gallery from October 7 to 29.



The Embassy of Portugal and Portuguese Cultural Centre in Bangkok are presenting the show of works that illuminate Rita Gomes’ observations on the absurdities of life. She’s sometimes angry, but always brutally honest. 

Born in 1988 in Porto, Gomes is a graphic designer and illustrator based in Lisbon. She has always experimented with different media and formats, but scribbled words and phrases have been her main focus.

This exhibition focuses on her work on paper – doodles of what she may or may not have been feeling at a given moment, coming at the viewer with a seemingly artless air. 

In all of these works, she calls attention to the flaws and affectations of mainstream culture with words and images that beckon the viewer to enjoy the liberating power of a good laugh.

The WTF Cafe is on Sukhumvit Soi 51 near the Thonglor BTS station. It’s open Tuesday to Sunday from 4 to 10pm. 

Admission is free. Find out more at www.WTFBangkok.com.
