Thai artists may have various styles of creating art, however, the majority of Thai artists are influenced by Professor Silpa Bhirasri, an Italian sculptor who founded Silpakorn University, the first Art school of Thailand. He was hailed as the Father of Modern art of Thailand and the Thai Contemporary art scene. His famous motto is “ARS LONGA VITA BREVIS” which means “Art is long, life is short” which has become the motto in everyone’s heart. Many Thai artists and art people still respect and praise him because he rooted the great conceptual framework to Thai contemporary artists. Moreover, students and alumni from Fine Art, Silpakorn University are admitted as eminent artists, who continue to develop on his style of work; some may get rewards or receive national artist awards that make his style eternal.
Even if Prof. Silpa Bhirasri had strongly influenced Thai artists, however, In the present, the innovation of technology has become more influential toward everyday life. Therefore, young Thai artists are utilizing a new medium and platform to do the art, not only hand painting like in the past, but they also use technology to create art pieces or art forms. Moreover, they also learn outside the existing style and mix them with cultural styles which make Thai art even more remarkable.
Speaking frankly, the contemporary art world is another personal historical work which the artists’ reflect. Some contemporary artists may agree or disagree with the concepts, but they present the artwork to inform the audiences, no right or wrong but only reasonableness. However, different countries, different minds that make Thai Contemporary Art topics are outstanding because of the various ideas, styles and expressions of every life and current situation. Thai artists have robust conceptual frameworks in contrast to western artists because of religion and belief. 333Art Gallery strongly supports the artists toward contemporary art concept.
