Jirapat Tatsanasomboon

Born 1971 in Samut Prakarn, Tatsanasomboon graduated with a Masters Degree from Silapakorn University in 1999. He has since participated in local and international exhibitions, most notably in Korea and New York. He also had the honour being one of two artists to showcase their works at the Beijing Olympics exhibition, Visions of East Asia 2008. His works have evolved from the blatant to the more subtle, constantly reinventing the works by masters such as Van Gogh and Robert Indiana. They encourage the viewer to think deeper, to explore the message he wishes to convey in the subtlety of his painting. From a country that welcomes modernization, yet clings firmly to its traditional values, Tatsanasomboon’s art challenges all to re-think and re-evaluate the dilemmas not only in Thailand but the world over
