Rising artist Kantapon Metheekul, aka Gongkan, explores the concept of conflict and social inequality through satirical works in the exhibition “Life is too short to hate"” showing at ODS Objects of Desire Store, on the third floor of Siam Discovery until July 15.

The works are a continuation of his earlier show “Teleport” in New York that drew on his direct experience of racism and social inequality while living in the Big Apple.

“As suggested by the name ‘Teleport’, a black hole is a metaphor in my works for freedom. Back in Thailand, I have observed many social conflicts and have incorporated them in my work,” says Kantaporn, who has created an image of US President Donald Trump kissing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. 

His works are also featured on limited-edition lifestyle products including T-shirts, bags, mobile phones cases, plates, pins and stickers, which will be available only during the exhibition period.
