Vipoo Srivilasa

Vipoo Srivilasa

A Thai born, Melbourne-based artist, curator and arts activist,

Vipoo Srivilasa works predominantly in ceramics, creating contemporary porcelain sculptures exploring cross- cultural experiences. His work is a playful blend of historical figurative and decorative art practices with a healthy dose of contemporary culture.

Vipoo’s creations often touch on political and social issues such as the environment, migration and minority as well as Australian culture.

In 2017 he represented Australia in the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale in Korea; won the 44th Muswellbrook Art Prize (Ceramics), and received a general skills and arts development grant from the Australian Council for the Arts to work with Sakarin Krue-On, a multi-disciplinary Thai artist, and Marije Vogelzang, in order to develop and create new interactive ceramic work for an exhibition at Edwina Corlette Gallery in 2019 and the S.A.C. Subhashok The Arts Centre in Bangkok.

Vipoo has exhibited internationally and loves creating opportunities for artists to collaborate through community based art projects. His work is held in various public art collections.

Vipoo was awarded a Bachelor of Art (Ceramics) from Rangsit University, Bangkok, Thailand in 1994 which he followed with a Graduate Diploma of Arts (Ceramics) three years later at Monash University in Melbourne, and in 2014 was awarded a Master of Fine Art and Design from the University of Tasmania, Hobart.
