Vipoo Srivilasa

Dance along with Dok Rak and Friends

Meet APT10 Kids mascot Dok Rak and friends (Dok Rak means 'Flower of Love' in Thai). The characters were inspired by Thai–Australian artist Vipoo Srivilasa’s ‘flower bear’ sculptures. Flower bears are imaginary creatures made out of many individual petals or flowers. This animation forms part of Vipoo Srivilasa’s APT10 Kids project, 'Garden of Love', which you can visit at the Queensland Art Gallery.

In the 'Garden of Love' Vipoo Srivilasa invites children to reflect on the people they miss the most by writing them a message or drawing their portrait on a flower template. Children can add their flower to the garden to help it grow!
