Arboreal Impulse is a textile art exhibition that explores the relationship between modern human tribes and nature. The things that we value are constantly changing depending on the environment we find ourselves in. People become more distant from one another and individualism is valued over community unlike the vines from plants and trees that intertwine and lace together. In this collection we are creating a sense of tribal cohesion through this limited edition screen print on fabric.
Born in 1986 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Apirom Somlit Graduated from Rajamagala University of Technology Lanna with a BA in Fine arts. A trained painter, he has been the resident artist and designer at Prayer Textile Gallery for 10 years. This collection, ‘Arboreal Impulse’, is inspired by paintings created by the late Marisa Buerkle, co-founder and creative director of Prayer Textile Gallery, without whom Apirom would not have developed a love of textiles. Apirom believes that art can be found virtually anywhere when looked for. A refreshing drink created from handpicked ingredients, if appreciated, is art because it was purposefully put together for someone’s feeling of happiness. “I believe that art is a thing of beauty that can transfer a feeling of joy when received by the viewer.” says Apirom.
