Surapong Sudasna Na Ayudhya

Surapong Sudasna Na Ayudhya

(Born1984), is a young artist who takes his work seriously, putting  in years of research to develop its best sense of poetic quality.

For his most recent exhibtion, Hero, Surapong spent two years living in construction sites to record and study the lives of the construction works.

Surapong started the project with the belief that,” When you are feeling unfortuante, look at other people who are less privileged than you are”, and so he began his observation. What was revealed, however, was a new philosophy towards life; to appreciate what you have and to have hope for tomorrow.

Surapong channeled the inspiration of this philosophy to empower and glorify the physical builders of Thai society. Surapong’s work is characterized by large hands and feet, which symbolize the strength and power of the labor profession. He adds character and authenticity to the paintings by adding found-on-site materials and dark ink colors.
