Price on Application

An Art graduate from Rajamonkala Technology Centre (Bangkok), Attasit Pokpong (born in 1977) started his career at the end of the ‘90s and rapidly established himself as a major Thai contemporary artist. His distinctive style has attracted a significant interest across the globe since. His work has been shown in many group and solo exhibitions in prestigious art spaces and fairs in Bangkok, Shanghai, Paris, London, Hong Kong, Basel, Melbourne or Miami.
Attasit Pokpong has also committed to the development of the Thai art scene. To allow the possibility of an art created for the love of art rather than by financial necessity, he launched the V64 Art Studio project (2011-2015). This arts community aimed at offering a place of creative expression, visibility, and growth opportunities to many talented young or established artists suffering from the lack of government’s support in Thailand and at helping them stand out on the fast-growing Asian art market.
After his early street scenes portraying Thai locals populating the Bangkok urban landscape, this watercolor, acrylic and oil painting master is now renowned for his more recent and very popular work focusing on a specific subject: a human face holding a high expressive potential and containing one’s lifestyles and emotions. Through large-scale bright and colourful pop-influenced, close-up portraits of Asian females, Attasit Pokpong transcribes his models’ personal emotions that also reveal collective social features. His wife, Wallaya Rattanapirom, is the main muse behind these iconic mysterious faces with large eyes and luscious lips, executed in a delicate dry brush signature technique.
