Chaiwat Kamfun is a lecturer from Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna and an artist of Thai traditional art, though he defines his style of work “semi Thai traditional” which contains impressive dimensions of dynamic movement.
The stories in his paintings involve with belief and way of life in concept of Buddhism.
I followed and wrote about his works many years ago. Recently, it seems he works harder and his work quality improves noticeably. He also has contact with several Thai and foreign art collectors who come to purchase his paintings and they exchange ideas about art. From this, I can see some changes in his latest works in painting and printmaking. Such changes are full of feelings and emotions more than his earlier works I saw a decade ago.
