Lot description
"Portrait: Girl with Pink Lips" (2012) is a stunning large-scale painting from the internationally acclaimed oeuvre of rising star, South-East Asian artist Attasit Pokpong (Thailand, b. 1977). This painting belongs to the artist's ongoing "Portrait" series of surreal images of beautiful young women each against monochromatic backgrounds. This is one of Attasit's most celebratory and exciting works to-date, painted in his iconic Neo-Pop color palette and signature cropped, close-up composition. This girl's docile expression invites one to gaze upon her visage, as if recalled from a memory or dream. Her gentle expression is in dynamic contrast to her sublime, blue face and her perfectly painted ultra-vivid pink lips. This painting measures 33.50 x 49.25 inches (85 x 125 cm), is unframed and in excellent condition.

Attasit belongs to a new generation of Contemporary SE Asian artists who are making their mark throughout Asia and now Europe and the U.S. The artist received his Diploma in Art from Rajamonkong Technology Centre, Bangkok, Thailand. In May 2009 Attasit had a major exhibition in Shanghai, China followed by another exhibition in Paris, France November 2009. His unique style has attracted considerable international attention, prompting additional exhibitions in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, France, the U.K., in Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, China, Singapore, Thailand), Australia as well as in New York and Los Angeles in 2010. The artist lives and works in Thailand.
