The Artist

Somsak Hanumas is officially from Bangkok where he has spent al his childhood as well and most of his life as an adult. He joined Royal Institute of Technology in Ladkrabang to start his career of an engineer but he never forgot his first passion –painting-. After obtaining his diploma, Somsak decides to take brushes and to quit his call of an engineer, and to do what he loves the most, his art. Self-taught, he has been practicing for 15 years.

Landscape, Lines and Dots

After he paints background on canvas, Samsak adds many  colored dots, adding them to the painting following the gradation that he already imagined in his head.

After this step, Samsak, using the finest brush leaves trails of dots until he covers whole canvas. This work, time, patience and repetitivity demands patience, which Somsak doesn’t find extremely hard because it gives him time to think and live his painting, as well to think about life and time-passing.

Perfect canvas requires approximately 8 to 12 weeks. Frequently, Somsak paints landscapes that left mark on him, such as, beach in Bangkok, monsoon browning on the wet field, edge of the jungle, all of that but with his personal touch. It’s up to spectator to perceive –or not- hidden landscape behind lines and dots.
