Wisut Ponnimit “Smile”

Lovely girl Mamuang will teach you how precious daily life is!

2018.10.26 [Fri] - 11.18 [Sun]

Smile, can not be made
Smile, can just come by itself
Smile, can go when it wants to go
But it’s ok, smile will come back just like the sun

New solo exhibition “Smile” by Wisut Ponnimit, Thai artist and cartoonist, and well-known for his nickname “Tam.”
Mamuang is a character Wisut created during two-and-a-half-year stay since 2003 in Japan. The origin of the name comes from her head’s shape being like a mango (‘mamuang’ is mango in Thai). She is an innocent and lovely girl who cries when she feels sad, and laughs when she has fun. As Mamuang has been used for several products or companies, she is renowned in Asia including Thailand and Japan.
