The virtual reality Art Bakery Gallery presents the next bi-monthly 360-degree immersive VR exhibition project with the online showcase "Reborn" until Aug 31.
A collaboration with AST Global, a VR/AR content developer, the non-physical virtual exhibition features pop-up memories that will allow viewers to revisit cartoon characters of their childhood through a selection of 12 digital art creations by Pichet Rujivararat.
Also known as Tikkywow, the artist and illustrator is known for his signature style that involves using bright and contrasting colours to create a new image structure featuring a different expression.
Among his highlight pieces include Tom & Jerry On Monday Lunch, Popeye At 8 P.M., Tuesday Morning Boy, Simpson 9 A.M. Shower and Sonic 5 P.M. -- all inspired by the cartoon characters that most people were familiar with in their younger years.
A graduate from Chulalongkorn University, Tikkywow has collaborated with many well-known advertising agencies. His works have appeared in both local and international media.
He has exhibited in Singapore and Japan and won second prize from Thai AirAsia's "Paint The Sky With Amazing Thailand" design contest. His recent works can be seen at Nike Outlet at Siam Premium Outlet Bangkok.
