Spanish Artist Miquel Barcelo Paints 20-Meter Canvas on Boat in Thailand

BANGKOK – Spanish artist Miquel Barcelo painted on Friday a giant canvas while aboard a boat on a river in the Thai capital as part of a live art performance that saw his creation disappear.

Barcelo produced his artwork, entitled “Despintura Fonica,” on a 20-meter-long canvas in front of the eyes of a select audience made up of local celebrities and Spanish diplomats on a barge on the Chao Phraya river that runs through Bangkok.

“It’s a ‘performance’ in which I paint with water, then it’s about seeing the disappearance of the image,” the artist told EFE.

The painter, from Mallorca, used water and a special canvas that allowed his creation to disappear upon drying.

“I like that something happens that lasts this time, half an hour, no longer,” he added. “Everything becomes ephemeral.”

It was the artist’s largest piece to date, and the performance was accompanied by violin music.

Barcelo has won several accolades, including the Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts in 2003 and his “Dome” on the ceiling of a room at the European headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva.
