Color overwhelms Thailand’s architectural landscapes in Wuthipol Ujathammarat‘s new photographic zine.
With Urban Mess 2, the Thai artist, photographer, and graphic designer invites us to discover Bangkok, his native city with its tropical climate, in a different way. His pictures capture fragments of the urban environment (building facades, car mirrors, traffic cones, stairs, balconies, windows…) in a set of geometric lines.
Architecture, landscapes, and everyday surfaces become pictorial abstractions in vibrant images. The banal often conceals unexpected treasures.
Wuthipol Ujathammarat brilliantly documents all those strange, forgotten and neglected details of the urban environment that turn out to be very aesthetic to our eyes. In this “dazzling tonal disorder” nestles “a form of graphic art,” as the photographer underlines, creating expressive compositions, through their visual deconstruction, in pastel or primary colors. Even sunny shades where the shadow intermittently interferes.
His minimalist games multiply the surrealist perspectives, leaving free rein to interpretation.
