The Nation



Political Art

Forty-two paintings and prints are on view in a show of satirical art called "Silpa Karawa Prachatham" ("Art in Praise of the Masses") at the DOB Hualamphong Gallery on Rama IV Road until January 31, 2014. The artworks are for sale with all proceeds going to the Rehabilitation Fund for Victims of Political Rallies set up by the Students and People's Network for Thailand's Reform. Mocking portraits of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra are to be expected. Those depicting Suthep Thaugsuban, head of the People's Democratic Reform Committee, have a heroic aspect in fast action strokes. The red, white and blue of the Thai flag are everywhere.
