Wipoosana Supanakorn paints figures and portraits in an abstract style.
His work has a refreshing and vigorous quality , undoubtedly referencing Picasso & Cubism,
yet imbued with a Thai aesthetic, an attractive blend of gentleness and strength.
The artist first sketches an outline of the figure or face, overpaints the entire canvas with several layers of vigorous stripes of bright colour, then completes the image with bands of predominantly pastel colours, leaving accents of the underlying layers.
Wipoosana thus creates a pleasing abstract composition, contrasting broad expanse and detail,and effecting a mellow, relaxed atmosphere with a veiled sense of resolution.
Wipoosana: “My recent paintings, so evolved from the pure abstraction that came from my studying in the United States, now reflect Thailand, as I felt that the location is so important to my life and work. These added glimpses of reality, such as people I saw, architecture, weather, food, and language are also mixed with Thai spirit. This new environment changes what I see, and therefore how I feel, and therefore how I paint.”
Wipoosana Supanakorn, was born in 1975 in Bangkok, Thailand. He completed his Bachelor of Arts degree at the King Mongkut Institute of Art Ladkrabang in 1998 and his Master Degree in San Francisco, United States. He currently lives in Thailand.
