Throughout his life Utai Nopsiri has been fascinated by wood, a medium through which he chooses to convey his ideas and artistic creations. Each of his works is entirely handcrafted without use of electrical tools.
Capturing Moments will comprise eight abstract teak sculptures reflecting his perspectives through a lens of eastern philosophy rooted in Buddhism and Taoism.
Capturing Moments exhibition will be on view from 24 April 2014 – 15 June 2014. The opening reception will be on Thursday, 24 April 2014 at 7 pm. Onward.

Born 1970 in Chachoengsao and lives and works in Nakornphrathom, Utai Nopsiri graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from Silpakorn University. Utai’s work is unique in large wooden sculptures, entirely and painstakingly handcrafted without the use of electrical tools. He was lifted from obscurity after being discovered working in a tin shed-cum-studio in a bustling market just outside of Bangkok by 100 Tonson Gallery. In the wake of his debut solo Only Appearance, Utai received tremendous positive response from collectors and art audience at large. Utai then continued his solo exhibition Liberation with 100 Tonson Gallery in 2010 and had inevitably become one of 100 Tonson’s most prominent Thai artists. Moreover, he has participated in group exhibitions such as Beasts, Breasts & Beauty, Alliance Française Singapore, Singapore (2008) and Showcase Singapore, Singapore (2009). Utai also won numerous awards including 3rd Prize (Sculpture), 51st National Exhibition of Art, Bangkok (2005), 2nd Prize, Krung Thai Bank Award, 52nd National Exhibition of Art, Bangkok (2006).
