Official description

The Museum of Contemporary Art (Moca Bangkok)’s ‘‘Destiny to Imagination’’ exhibition compiles a collection of 30 paintings created during the past two decades by Prateep Kochabua, one of the most prominent artists in the Thai contemporary art scene.

Noted for transforming his fantasies into masterpieces, the surrealist artist uses Thai traditional culture as the origin of his imagination. With his excellent painting skills, he frees his overwhelming fantasy onto canvas after canvas.

His first collection of artworks reveals the philosophy of reincarnation. His later works are inspired by different sets of notions—dhamma and nature, the human body and the truth about nature, and society, culture and desire.

With his appreciation of the living, Prateep gives significance to every detail in life.Hecan transcribe little things in life into memorable paintings. He’s also able to use the brush to delicately portray his feelings—from happiness, sorrow, and sadness, to anxiety and desire.

Since 1995, Prateep’s collections of paintings have been widely recognised, manyof which tell the story of a magical land based on his desire to escape the chaos of reality. This land is like his spiritual haven where he can freshen up and prepare himself to go back to face the real world.

Destiny to Imagination will be on display at the Museum of
Contemporary Art (Moca Bangkok) from tomorrow until Oct 16. The opening ceremony is today at 6pm. Call 02-953-1005—7.
