Pakitsilp Varamissara, Retrospective

3-28 Feb 2012
National Gallery
With the support of the French Embassy
In the framework of La Fete, French Cultural Festival

Discover the astonishing dream-like world of Pakitsilp Varamissara!
Pakitsilp’s solitary pictorial quest is unclassifiable and illustrates his journey through life. The Chiangmai-born artist oscillates between tradition and modernity, and his style is subtly influenced by the style of Lanna. During a trip to France, initiated by Toot Yung Gallery in 2009, Pakitsilp Varamissara discovered and was inspired by the great French masters; he radically simplified his technique and began using the vibrant colors that characterize his work. For the first time, a retrospective is devoted to this independent artist and presents approximately 100 works produced over the past 30 years.
