This is one of Pokpong's older street scenes. Done in 2005. It measures 160cm. x 120cm. (63" x 47") and is oil on canvas. This is a masterpiece that will likely appreciate significantly over time. 

Attasit Pokpong has become one of Thailand's top contemporary artists. He has demonstrated an ability to convey ideas which are distinctive, mysterious, and compelling. Pokpong's technical mastery, combined with his fresh take on everyday life, in this part of the world, combine to make his work stimulating, and gorgeous, while at the same time creating a great deal of intrigue. His recent shows in Bangkok and worldwide have sold out.

 

Pokpong is now showing at Art Basel, both in Miami and in Basel. He is represented worldwide, but, none of this style of work is available anywhere, except from this gallery. These paintings are far more beautiful in person, than they are in the images. The photos just cannot capture the subtle beauty of the work, nor the mastery of the technique. For this reason we offer a money back guarantee on these lovely paintings.

About the Artist

 

 Since launching his professional career as a painter, Mr Attasit Pokpong has won a series of awards and prizes in art competitions in Thailand and, at a young age, he is already a recognised master of watercolour, acrylics and oils.  His earlier watercolours portray the hustle and bustle of city life with its interminable Thai traffic jams in delicately luminous colour combinations that imbue the scenes with a curiously refreshing sense of tranquillity.  The large oil and acrylic canvases Attasit is currently producing reflect the pale palette and relaxed brushwork of his watercolours, portraying girls in their natural beauty, unaffected and real.  His girls are at once clearly oriental in their features but universal in their unassuming beauty, appealing to viewers of every race and culture.
Thai Fine Art Ltd is pleased to introduce Attasit to the British and European public alongside our established artists, including our featured artist, Mr Kitti Narod, with whom Attasit regularly exhibits in Bangkok, where both painters have made their home and established themselves firmly on the local art scene.
