"A Difficult Journey: Thai artist Kritsana Chaikitwattana"
2003-02-23 until 2003-03-16
Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition A Difficult
Journey - by the Thai artist Kritsana Chaikitwattana, on 22 February - 16
March, 2003. Kritsana Chaikitwattana was born in 1977 in Hat Yai, graduated with a
Bachelor Degree from Chulalongkorn University in 1998, and with a Master
Degree from Silapakorn University in 2002. He creates works by first
carving on vinyl tiles or plywood and then paint with oil.
Most of his
works feature the grim faces of the poor who have taken the difficult
journey to the city in order to try their luck and improve their lives.
This is a statement expressing the artists compassion and concern for the
poor and homeless in Thai society. Some of his paintings feature the
contrast and disparity between the middle class Thais and the poorer segment
of the society.
