“365 Days after..(coup)..” By Chumpol Kamwanna

Chumpol Kamwanna

Chumpol Kamwanna was born in 1973 in Chonburi, Thailand. He lives and works in Bangkok. He graduated with a diploma from the painting department of Poh-Chang Academy of Arts in Bangkok where he studied from 1994 until 1996.Painter Chumpol Kamwanna’s works usually depict himself. Sometimes he is seen taking selfies in some of the country’s most tragic historical, often political, events or focus on frontal and sideways views of humans at other times.

His works aim to inspire the viewers to contemplate the things surrounding us. As long as the world keeps moving, life must go on. As we live in a society of diverse cultures, traditions and lifestyles the works also aim to raise questions about self-identity. Our livelihoods are commonly influenced by everything around us, including the economy, society, politics, religion, education and culture. Chumpol observes human beings destined to face birth, life and death the same way other all other humans do. He asks viewers how we should deal with the differences among us to accept that we are all equal.

Chumpol’s solo exhibitions were held at the Bangkok Arts & Cultural Center (BACC), Artery Gallery, Chamchuri Gallery and Rebel Art Space in Bangkok. He has participated in group shows at the Embassy of the Netherlands in Bangkok, the Minimal Art Gallery in Chiang Mai and the Poh-Chang Gallery in Bangkok.
