Celebrated Thai artist, Suwat Boontam (1982) won several awards for his distinguished style blending painting and carving on wooden canvases.
His brushstrokes with knife and chisel make him more of a sculptor than a painter while his work gives the viewer an experience that flirts with French Impressionism, Russian Constructivism and architectural surrealism.
WANDER IN A CITY OF DREAMS
Mostly black and white, his paintings illustrate with almost geometrical precision the restless imaginary cities of his dreams, preserved from any human or organic life, always in construction and transformation. Conceptual as well as figurative, the buildings in his landscapes float between abstract and photography.
