TAWATCHAI PUNTUSAWASDI

One of the protégés of the late legendary Contemporary artist, Montien Boonma, Tawatchai Puntusawasdi creates his sculptures from precise mathematic calculations while incorporating handcrafted elements. He possesses great expertise in the use of materials such as wood, stones, fibers, and various types of metal. His works since 2002 onward have played with the aspect of the world’s gravity to challenge the viewers’ understanding of volume and space, communicating with and questioning them about ego and impermanence in Buddhist philosophy through compelling large-scale sculptures. Puntusawasdi has had works featured in major art festivals in Japan, the United States, Europe, Australia, Taiwan and Southeast Asian countries. Recently, his work Super Moon (2561) and A Dim Night (2561) were chosen to be featured at the 21st Biennale of Sydney in Sydney, Australia.
