Official description

Sathorn 11 Art Space, a new art venue on Sathon Soi 11, will host the first solo residency exhibition by Sarawut Thaichuai, “Blood, Sweat and Rust”, from Sept 19-Oct 20.

On show will be a limited edition of 12 portraits depicting lives of working class Thais. The young Bangkok artist uses empathy to connect with his chosen subject’s emotion to create his unique style of expressionistic works of art.

His avant-garde attitude has contributed to a new style of painting that he has coined “living art”. Just like the working class subjects in his work, each of his oil paintings is believed to have a lifespan of 35-50 years. As time passes, the corrosive rust used in the mix eats away at the painting and causes it to crack and flake.

“Why should my paintings last forever if the subject in my paintings is slowly dying of oppression and depression?” asked the artist.

The opening ceremony is on Sept 19 at 6pm. Sathorn 11 Art Space is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 7pm. Call 02-004-1199.
