Thai Neotraditional Art is a quintessentially Thai art practise that emerged from the late 1970s to the early eighties, but which has roots reaching back into earlier historical periods of Thai artistic expression and the religious traditions and cultures that predate them. This book, Thai Neotraditional Art, explores this rich historic background and the milieu that lead up to the establishment of the movement before surveying six of its most important practitioners: Chalermchai Kositpipat, Panya Vijinthanasarn, Sompop Budtarad, Rearngsak Boonyavanishkul, Thongchai Srisukprasert and Alongkorn Lauwatthana.

Additional Information

Chalermchai Kositpipat

Chalermchai Kositpipat attractedthe attention of many sponsors who chose him for specific and notable commissions. Despite the often controversial natureof some of his early paintings, his stature and ability among his peers rose to the extent that not only did his work becomemore widely accepted, but also led to His Majesty King BhumibolAdulyadej of Thailand being counted among his list of eminentand influential clients.

Chalermchai was born in Chiang Rai, the northernmost part of Thailand, but graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1977 from Silpakorn University, Bangkok. Among Chalermchai’s captivating work is his mural at Wat Rong Khun (The White Temple), an ornate Buddhist temple in his native province, of which he is quoted as saying: ‘Only death can stop my dream, but can not stop my project.’ His status on the international art scene was further confirmed in 1998 when one of his works sold at a Christie’s auction in Singapore for US$17,000.


Panya Vijinthanasarn

If the artist’s name is mentioned, many people think of his works concerning Thai art and tradition which tell the Buddhist stories elaborately. Most of his works reflect the Buddhist stories, philosophy, and Thainess. All are told through the gentle face of the Buddha image, but the content inside is full of intense stories reflecting the good and the bad clearly. His works we are most familiar with are paintings.

Rearngsak Boonyavanishkul

The content of all his works is relevant to the Buddhist philosophy as people nowadays view the life as it is—a suffering-laden cycle of life covered with a happiness-like feeling, and getting lost in the endless cycle of death and rebirth. The artist’s identity is the Eastern ideology which presents the Buddhist philosophy.

Thongchai Srisukprasert

The creator of Thai contemporary art—both a painter and a sculptur. He has a concept of a path of human beings who are still in Samsara or a cycle of birth and death, and filled with defilements, passion, lust, and conditions which human beings are stuck in the mundane and do not want to find a path to the ultramundane. The artist creates his works in order to reflect inner ugly complexes—with both aesthetic and unpleasant aspects. Presented through art’s visual elements with surrealistic forms and shapes.

Alongkorn Lauwatthana

The artist who conveys stories through spiritual symbols. Most of his works are based on religious beliefs and the puzzle of Dhamma, leaving an audience to think and find solutions by themselves.

Based on the concept that real Thai art is not only the pattern called “Kanok” as we once understood, patterns in Thai art help us think, understand, and see appearances of what we want to convey clearly. According to this concept, the artist can create various forms of Buddhist art with a combination of the eastern and western styles.
