Transcending Thai Surrealism; the art of Somphong Adulyasaraphan

Most people who see Somphong Adulyasarapan ’s work consider him to be the Salvador Dali of Thailand. Somphong’s style of painting, the shapes, brush strokes and details of the lines and the choice of colours plus the way in which he presents his ideas are very similar, at least on a superficial level, to that of Salvador Dali. One of the most striking similarities is Somphong’s use of egg-shaped vignettes to convey multiple levels of meaning in his Art.

Additional Information

Somphong Adulyasaraphan

Somphong is concerned to provide a painterly account of the Buddhist doctrine of anicca in which all created being must pass through the cycle of birth, growth, decay and death. Somphong Adulyasaraphan’s art splendidly conveys the truths of life and uses humorous and beautiful images to attract art lovers and artists to become one in heart and mind.
