Inside the Studio with Mit Jai Inn

Click here to watch an exclusive visit to Thai artist Mit Jai Inn‘s studio in Chiang Mai.


Mit Jai Inn’s works often cross the boundaries between painting and sculpture in conjunction with the aesthetics and the socio-political reactions appearing as hybrid objects or projects. His studio presents a dynamic range of materials, from rounded thick chunks of self-made oil-based color to canvases that mostly take the form of two-sided screens which are displayed and installed in various forms: hung, rolled, folded, and even woven. The repetitive and intentional motion of adding decades-old layers of paint, which he revives with linseed oil, creates a textured dimension to the surface and at the same time causes what lies beneath to emerge.
