Thai Artists | Mongkhol Suvarnachatri

Mongkhol Suvarnachatri was born in 1987 and graduated with a Master of Fine Art in Painting from Silapakorn University.  A deep thinker, Mongkhol purges his buried, and sometimes repressed emotions onto the canvas as a cathartic release.  His paintings are surrealistic, yet realistic;  beautiful, yet broken;  real, yet raw. Unsettling, sad, and illogical, Mongkhol’s paintings address his world gone wrong.  A theme of sadness and wounded-ness pervade throughout his art as he attempts to make sense of the emptiness within.  To the artist, life is one beautiful and broken mess begging to be redeemed.  And for many, this is a truth that resonates within.  Mongkhol cites Sandro Botticelli, Michelangelo, Piet Mondrian, Rene Magritte, Andrew Wyeth, Gustave Courbet, Lucian Freud, Jeff Koons and Natee Utarit as some of his favorite artists.  He also immerses himself in contemplating the philosophy of Ferdinand de Saussure, Plato, Roland Barthes, and enjoys analyzing the theories of Sigmund Freud.  Mongkhol has participated in several group and solo exhibitions in Thailand and Singapore (2009, 2010, 2011, 2014, 2017).  He was awarded the Distinguished Prize from the Young Thai Artist Award by SCG in 2010.  In 2011, he was an Award Winner of the 13th Panasonic Contemporary Painting at the National Gallery in Bangkok, Thailand.
