About the work
Manit Sriwanichpoom
Thai, b. 1961
Follow

Manit Sriwanichpoom could be considered a political activist who uses photography and video to express his views. In 1998, Sriwanichpoom created his Pink Man, which would become the iconic figure in his artwork. Played by the artist’s friend and poet Sompong Thawee, the Pink Man is a character dressed in a pink silk suit with matching pink objects, like shopping carts or balloons, who looks equally impassively at the touristic monuments of Bangkok and scenes of public violence in Sriwanichpoom’s staged images. Sriwanichpoom also produced a series of six works titled “This Bloodless War” (1997) that re-create iconic photojournalistic images from the Vietnam War and the bombing of Nagasaki in Japan. One work in the series is based on Nit Ut’s infamous 1972 photograph of a girl fleeing a napalm attack, recast with contemporary figures carrying brand name shopping bags.
