Natee Utarit

Thailand

Born in Bangkok, Thailand, 1970. Education: College of Fine Art, Bangkok (1987); B.F.A. Graphic Art, The Faculty of Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts, Silpakorn University, Bangkok (1992).

Since 1994, Natee has had more than 11 solo exhibitions in Bangkok, Singapore and Europe.

The following series of ‘landscapes’ belong to a period soon after Natee’s series of ‘mother figure’ when visuals are in his mind but not really specific in shape or definition.

The ‘still life’ of cloth soon followed after the ‘landscapes’ when he was inspired by the stories of a 5th C Greek artist whose super-realism in his painting of a curtain tricked the viewer into attempting to raise it. The ‘cloth’ series is homage to that episode.
