Surachai Mawornkanong

Surachai Mawornkanong

Also known as Niam Mawornkanong is an established Thai artist specializing in intricate acrylic painting that often projects a quality reminiscent of well-assembled oil works. He uses his art to captivate audiences’ attention then set them free to explore their own subconsciousness.

Though possessing degrees in philosophy and fine art, the majority of his technique is self-taught and compliments the fact that he is colorblind. His work also displays a versatile vision, ranging between abstract principles and realistic portraiture.

Mawornkanong has had numerous solo and group exhibitions. ‘The Sea Remembers Us’ in 2020 is his seventh solo exhibition and the third solo show with S.A.C. which he imparts the thoughtful story of human livelihood by using a vast sea as a narrator.
