Binko – real name Phapfah Puttharugsa – is an illustrator who discovered her natural artistic talent while travelling the world. She chose to leave school at age 16 just to “find herself”.
She taught herself to draw, finally realising her true artistic vision when she decided to leave everything behind and explore different countries and cultures.
It gave her a new perspective that led to new ideas and sources of inspiration.
“Places & Traces”, for which admission is free, will feature pieces that are colourful yet have a certain dark mood as she recounts personal memories from her travels.
It has digital illustrations created using augmented reality (AR) technology, whereby the viewer can enjoy the works with movement.
The preview night will be October 2 from 5-8pm at the gallery on the 36th floor.
