Christian Phongphit Portfolio/CV 2010


'Curious, seemingly insignificant detailing of the metropolitan sprawl is typically ignored by the average urban dweller. But for Bangkok-based Germans landscape architect, artist and conceptual photographer Christian Phongphit, it is the random textures and patterns peppering vernacular objects and structures that turn the city into a living gallery.
Inspired by the weathered roofs of Bangkok buses, Phongphit photographs the paint cracked surfaces by standing atop pedestrian bridges. Mundane and unseen, the bus detailing is blown up and printed across canvases manifesting as an abstract painting.'
- Steven Pettifor, BAM - Bangkok Art Map, April 2008
