The Thai-British artist Jade Chorkularb was born in Thailand in 1971, moving to London in 1996. An award-winning conceptual artist working in multiple media, notably sculpture, painting, installation, video and performance, Jade Chorkularb holds an MSc in Interactive Multimedia (completed her MSc in 2001) and is the Winner of the Jerwood Drawing Prize (Student) 2016 (the winning piece can be seen here.)
Her work has been shown in over 20 international art exhibitions, film festivals and galleries in major cities in the USA, Maccedonia, Colombia, the UK, Germany, Italy, Korea and the Netherlands, following her debut solo exhibition in Chiangmai, Thailand, in 2014.
My work as an artist is a reflection of my belief in Buddhism, particularly Anatta meditation, the practice of no self. As a Thai who has lived half my life in London, self-exploration and the examination of identity through the prism of an East-West duality are central to my practice.
