Chamnan Chongpaiboon is part of a new generation of Thai artists, working in an adventurous graphic style, influenced by modern media images and Japanese print-making. Convinced from his childhood he will become an artist, Chamnan attended the College of Fine Art at Shupanburi and got a Bachelor ‘s Degree in Fine Arts with a major in Print Making from King Mongkut Institute of Technology at Ladkrabang.
Obsessed with perfection and details in his artwork, he was strongly influenced by one of his teachers from university, Mr. Dacha Worachun, thanks to whom he discovered the innovative technique of creating texture on copper. Another key influence for Chamnan is Japanese artist Yayoi who journeyed to America when she was 20 to study sculpture and painting. That’s why his creations are bold, feminine-inspired images, using graphic textured backgrounds and strong colors. Each piece of Chamnan’s work normally takes approximately one or two weeks to complete, as he insists on crafting every aspect of his painting to the highest of standards.
