Sin Sin Fine Art is pleased to present "Thai Abstraction" - a group exhibition of three leading talented Thai artists who have formed close artistic ties with Germany - Somyot Hanuntasuk, Somboon Hormtientong, and Thaiwijit Poengkasemsomboon. Perhaps it is due to this strong connection with Germany, their art stand out among other contemporary Thai artists. Primarily they choose to express their art through abstraction than realism. The highlight of the exhibition will be new works by Thaiwijit Poengkasemsomboon from his "Dog Make Over" series.
Born in Bangkok in 1949 having obtained a DAAD scholarship in Germany, Somyot Hananuntasuk studied at the Academy of Art in Munich, Germany, and the Academy of Art in Copenhagen, Denmark. Hananuntasuk‚s style is marked with flow and spontaneity. He has exhibited widely in Bangkok, Munich, and Hong Kong, as well as collaborated a joint exhibition with Thaiwijit Poengkasemsomboon in 2003. Hananuntasuk lives and works in Germany.
Somboon Hormtientong was born in Bangkok in 1949 and completed a M.A in the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Germany. Hormtientong‚s colourful works, be it through geometric deliberation or wilder gestured strokes, express a universal language of life‚s intensity and diversity. He has exhibited extensively in Bangkok, Chiangmai, Hong Kong, and Munich. The artist currently resides in Munich, Germany.
Born 1957 in Pattani, Thailand, Thaiwijit Poengkasemsomboon is one of Thailand's leading abstract artists. He creates works in a variety of medium including carpet, oil on canvas, watercolor on paper, sculptures and functional objects created by recycled material. Thaiwijit perceives himself as an ordinary person and his paintings are a reflection of an ordinary human's life. He prefers to live without excesses, in the Buddhist-inspired way of following the middle path.
