About the Artist

Udomsak Krisanamis (b. 1966, Bangkok, Thailand) deploys painterly approaches in body of work that freely integrates and pays reverence to found objects as diverse as newsprint, bedsheets or noodles to shape nonhierarchical, collage-like, formally considered compositions. Layering his selected media as densely populated, mesmerising abstractions, or as textured, patterned fields of built-up material, Krisanamis rejects narrative in favor of an improvisatory artistic mode that transforms assortments of objects into tools for free interpretation.

Udomsak Krisanamis has been the subject of international solo and group exhibitions including those at 100 Tonson Foundation, Bangkok (2023); Bangkok University Gallery, Bankgok (2019); The National Art Center and Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2017); CMU Art Center, Chiang Mai (2016); Haus der Kunst, Munich (2015); Kestnergesellschaft, Hanover (2008); Kunsthalle Basel, Basel (2003); Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus (2000) and Museum of Modern Art, New York (1998). Krisanamis lives and works in Chiang Mai.
