The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is pleased to announce the beginning of a new art exhibit. Featured will be the paintings of Mo Boonipat (Geisel ’16.) These paintings will be on display until April 2015.
Thanapoom (Mo) Boonipat, from Bangkok, Thailand, is a third-year Geisel School of Medicine student who began studying Chinese painting as a child. He continued to take Chinese painting lessons with various professors in both China and Thailand, where his work has been exhibited with nationally recognized artists. Most recently, he won 1st place in a national competition organized by the Chinese embassy in Thailand. Boonipat states: “Painting refined my ability to control my emotions and improved my concentration, all of which helps with patient care.”
Over the years, he has also auctioned a number of his paintings, raising about $30,000 to support different charities and hospitals in Thailand.
