The artist's background as an architect has trained him to look for structure and form in objects and art, while also being open to unconventional artistic tools and materials.
Pichai has made use of car exhaust carbon, recycled paper, flood water, and most recently, fertilizer and a steamroller to crush flowers, vegetables, coffee beans, and sugar canes.
Pichai Pongsasaovapark (1963) is a Bangkok-based Thai artist, designer, and photographer using acrylics, mixed media, and photography to create abstract and conceptual art.
Known for addressing concerns pressing society and sharing a deep interest in nature, Pichai has lately been focusing on environmental and climate change issues. In 2018, he was invited to present his work at the United Nations’ annual environmental conference in Bangkok.
TIMELESS ART SPACE TRAVEL
by PICHAI PONGSASAOVAPARK
For the NEW ARK EXHIBITION | Bangkok, in collaboration with SAC GALLERY, Pichai has created an exclusive installation inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s monolith from the film “2001: A Space Odyssey”.
As a preparation for our planet’s ill fate, Pichai gets humanity ready to leave Earth by taking with them its greatest shared legacy and timeless treasure: the world’s art. With a touch of fantasy, the installation consists of a master plan to take all the museums to space, with us.
