||Anan Thathamma was born in
Prachinburi, Thailand in 1969, and grew up on the eastern seaboard,
where he spent 12 years of his childhood living in a local temple
and studying Buddhism and Sanskrit. Here he gained an appreciation
for arts, as he was constantly surrounded by ancient Buddhist
images. At the age of 18, he decided to move to Bangkok to gain more
of life's experiences.
He has been a keen art student at
Alliance Française for several years, during which time he has also
travelled extensively throughout Asia. Anan draws upon the objects
and scenarios he sees around him every day for inspiration in his
art, with an unexpected slant. Having studied both watercolours and
oil, Anan prefers to use oil to highlight the contrasts and
contradictions he depicts in his paintings.
Anan Thathamma's debut exhibition
"CrossWorlds" features eleven oil paintings reworking
familiar objects and themes in an unusual fashion.
