Artist Pakpoom Silaphan is showing at the London Art Fair (18 - 22 January) as part of the Scream gallery's exhibition and has given Stylist some of his work for you to download.

The mixed media artist uses collage and illustration to create images that fuse iconic artists and public figures with advertising signs from his native Thailand or found objects. So you find President Obama, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol gazing nonchalantly against a background of battered Coca Cola, Pepsi or Fanta signs in a witty, thought-provoking juxtaposition. The centrepiece of Scream's exhibition at the London Art Fair will be a sculpture by Pakpoom Silaphan's - a giant folded metal paper aeroplane depicting Litchenstein's Wham.

Pakpoom's work is colourful, whimsical and relevant - the clever combination of famous faces with corporate branding is a statement about his personal experience of two very different worlds through the medium of pop culture. It's no coincidence that the master of pop culture, Andy Warhol, features prominently in his work.

To celebrate his work appearing at the London Art Fair, Pakpoom has created five exclusive paper plane designs that you can download and fold to make a set of collectable paper planes. All ‘Cut-Out and Keep’ Pakpoom paper planes can be signed by the artist at the Scream installation at the fair. If a full set of five designs are collected, and brought to the Scream installation, the collector will be issued with an authentication certificate. Pakpoom is at the fair between 12-2pm every day to sign your planes!

The first of the five designs, featuring Frida Kahlo, is ready for you to download at the bottom of this page and here are some instructions for making your paper plane.

We'll be bringing you more of Pakpoom's paper plane designs to download over the next few days so keep an eye out for these collectible little works of art!
