Tawatchai PUNTUSAWASDI

Tawatchai PUNTUSAWASDI

Born in Thailand in 1971; lives and works in Thailand.
Puntusawasdi produces three-dimensional works grounded in a strong interest in mathematics and the sciences. He is known particularly for the series of distorted structures that he has been releasing regularly since 2002. The slanted houses and benches, which clearly differ in size and shape to those in the real world, remind us of the pure pleasure of perceiving the world, and invites us to delve into philosophical and spiritual thought. He has participated in numerous international exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale (2003), the Biennale of Sidney (2006), and the Jakarta Biennale (2009), and has received many grants and prizes including the 15th Silpa Bhirasri Creativity Grant (2015) and a grant from the Morisot Foundation (2007). He was also the ARCUS artist-in-residence in 1996. At KENPOKU ART 2016, he will be exhibiting outdoor sculptures at the former Yawara shonen-no-ie.
