Japanese “Nobori” (vertical-hanging banners) are a common sight in Japan adorning shops, restaurants, festivals and temples. In this upcoming Bangkok exhibition the eye-pleasing proportions of nobori serve as a framework for 4 talented artists’ creative expression. For this show, each artist will create large-format (1.1 m. x 2.8 m.!) digital prints on Awagami washi paper; the prints will then suspend from the exposed beams at Salt restaurant; a favorite eatery of Bangkok’s creative community.
For ‘Nobori Thajin’ artists, this will be the first time to create such large-scale prints on Japanese paper and actually the first time digital prints of this nature will be exhibited in Thailand. With inspirational hand-drawn, photographic and digital imagery ranging from minimal to complex, the nobori-style prints will usher in a new era within Bangkok’s fine art printing landscape.
Host restaurant, Salt celebrates ‘Nobori Thaijin’ by launching a new Japanese-inspired menu (artfully printed on Awagami paper). They will also give away limited edition mini-prints to the first 500 tables.
Show venue / date: Salt Ari soi 4, Bangkok. Sept. 7-26th
Opening Reception: Sept. 7th @ 7:00pm
