A Spidey Sense

Jirapat Tasanasomboon - Our Prayers Are Answered (2006)

Jirapat is a Thai artist who visually introduces his contemporary American heroes (including Spiderman, Marilyn Monroe, and John Wayne) to traditional Thai heroes. Often the sites of their interaction are also iconic in nature - within classical and contemporary paintings. They speak of likeness and difference of human ideals over history and of the strange dinner party that is our increasingly global culture.
