San Francisco-based multimedia artist Sasinun (“Sasi”) Kladpetch is carving out a name for herself in the art and design world. At the kinetic intersection where SoMa, Union Square and Tenderloin converge, the LINE HOTEL SF aims to reflect the complex history, culture, and spirit of the city by exploring the juxtaposition of 21st century technology and design with the urban grittiness of this historic neighbourhood.
Sasi took this vision to heart and made it her mission to include the locals into the project. Using social media platforms, she requested surrounding neighbours in the hood to send her the dirt and soil from their backyards for her to incorporate into the installation. People delivered!
All kinds of substances and materials showed up on her doorstep and she found fascinating and unique ways to incorporate the organic materials into her art, which will be displayed on the lobby walls in the hotel entrance. She also made sure to attribute the materials to each of the community members who donated from their own backyards, truly bringing the community together for the project.
Sasi’s big project is the reveal of her permanent art installation that will reside in the lobby of the new LINE HOTEL San Francisco (950 Market Street), opening end September.
Born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand. Sasi received her Bachelor’s Degree in Decorative Art at Silpakorn University, Bangkok, Thailand. In 2016 she graduated with a Master’s degree from San Francisco Art Institute, California. Her works reflect the beauty of nature that has been hidden among urban living and has been exhibited at DZINE Gallery and throughout San Francisco. She has also been featured in solo exhibitions and group shows at Hang Art Gallery, San Francisco, Sanchez Art Center, SMAart Gallery & Studio, and H Gallery Los Angeles, among others.
The artist donated select works to the annual Hospitality House Art Auction since 2017. Kladpetch won the first jury show at The Art Association of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in sculpture category in 2019 and she recently participated in Artist residency at Chateau D’ Orquevaux in France 2019.
Sasi’s pieces are beautiful handmade sculptures that serve as high-end wall art instillations or sophisticated home décor/pottery.
