Aof Smith

Aof Smith

Graduated in M.F.A in visual arts in KMITL in Bangkok after he received his Bachelor degree of Fine art  in Chulalongkorn University,

A bright and talented Thai artist, expressing his perception and imagination through the wonders of Pop-surrealism. The main characters in Aof Smith’s work are a fluffy bulldog named Furry, whose curiosity is posted onto everything around him,

And a girl who represents pure innocence, revealing the chaotic world, each character revealing feelings of excitement and fear, as well as confusion.

Though there is heavy undertone of sorrow throughout the works; still a deep sense of purity and perseverance shines bright. His works have his own unique black humor inside. By far one of the more notable artists to be on the look out for.
