Dinhin Rakpongasok, a political cartoonist with the Bangkok Post, will launch his first portraiture exhibition tomorrow at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.
Entitled the "Beloved Portrait Collection", the exhibition presents about 50 works featuring the portraits of his art masters, friends and people who have inspired him. Among them are national artists Prathuang Aimcharoen and Thawal Dutchanee.
Starting as a hobby in 2010, Dinhin has developed unique portrait drawing technique using charcoal and crayon and tissue paper that emphasises perspective in each image.
It is his third solo exhibition.
The exhibition opening will be held today at the People's Gallery, 2nd floor of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, at 6.30pm. The exhibition runs until Jan 13.
During the exhibition, Dinhin will also conduct a free portrait drawing workshop for enthusiasts every Sunday at 1pm. Proceeds from sales will go to support needy students at Wat Woranat Banpot primary school in Nakhon Sawan where the artist studied.
