Guided Tour of Wattana Art Gallery with local artist Wattana Wattanapun

Wattana Wattanapun’s work, held in numerous public and private collections around the world, incorporates traditional Thai motifs in a contemporary perspective, using varied media including oil, acrylic and gold leaf on paper. He is well known for his original approach to painting and his creative use of local culture, specifically textiles, to convey a timely range of subject matter. Painting on a variety of materials, including bamboo blinds, furniture and objects, he often uses female forms enveloped in the rich texture of traditional textiles to evoke the corruption of the cultural environment and to make us question the nature of beauty.

Ajan Wattana will lead a guided tour of his gallery located near Wat Umong: Ajan Wattana holds a B.F.A. in painting from Silpakorn University in Bangkok and a M.A.E. in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design. Formerly a teacher in the Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiang Mai University, he is currently an academic consultant there.
