Mit Jai Inn studied art at the Silpakorn University from 1983 to 1986, an at the University of Applied Arts Vienna from 1988 to 1992. Mit cofounded Chiang Mai Social Installation with a group of artists, scholars and social activists.
Defying conventional boundaries of painting, Mit Jai Inn enacts multiple histories and treatments of the medium through a physically rigorous and repetitive labour cycle of mixing, applying, overlaying and eroding pigment. Mit’s largely solitary studio practice is rooted in perception, with relational intentions. Emerging in Berlina and Vienna in the late 1980s, Mit began a vocabulary of serial forms intended to counter aspects of formal painting and its market, and exhibitionary frameworks of their time. Mit’s paintings were unstretched an unframed, mostly two-sided, touchable works that populated public spaces and galleries alike. Embedded in Mit’s painted forms are reactions to aesthetic, social, and political histories.
