Mit Jai Inn

Mit Jai Inn is known for his boundary-defying painting and socially engaged practices. The artist was born in 1960 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where he lives and works today.

He studied art at Silpakorn University, Bangkok (1982–86), and then at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna (1987–92), during which time he worked as an assistant to artist Franz West.

Returning to Chiang Mai in 1992, Mit initiated socially and politically focused art initiatives. He co-founded Chiang Mai Social Installation, and has since been involved with Midnight University and The Land Foundation. In 2015, Mit founded CARTEL Artspace in Bangkok, a gallery offering space to artists reflecting on Thailand and South East Asia’s historical and current contexts. These non-institutional projects have become central to Thai contemporary art practice and discourse.
