Den Warnjing

Thailand

Born on 4th June 1967 in the ancient capital of Ayudhaya, Thailand
Den graduated with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Thai art from the Faculty of Painting Sculpture and Graphic Arts at Silpakorn University.

The uniqueness and charm of Den’s work lie in his ability to convey the simple, peaceful, carefree and remote rural way of life beautifully and profoundly. The placing of elements in his compositions is brilliant and natural whilst the lines are alive and organic. His love of details requires contemplation and time on the part of viewers.

Den’s personal statement, “My way of life the countryside since childhood have made me see that the folk’s way of life – simple, happy and peaceful. Their beliefs are related to religions, customs and benevolent traditions.”
