About the Artist
Incorporating etching, screenprint and collage into his imagery Pakpoom has played with the texture and quality of his source material, found metal signs. Along with Warhol, other imagery includes Marilyn Munroe, Keith Richards and Bob Dylan. Using vintage Coca-cola and Pepsi advertising signs as his canvas, Silaphan creates portraits of influential people using collage and illustration with marker pen and emulsion. High-profile figures including John Lennon, Che Guevera and The Queen populate the signs, making a clear connection between icons and the advertising industry. Silaphan takes Warhol’s elevation of everyday brands to high art, and combines it with his adoration of famous figures. The power of advertising and corporate branding is demonstrated by the infiltration of Coca-Cola, Pepsi etc. to countries outside Western culture.
