Lot Details

"Untitled (Double Portrait)" (2012) is a quietly surreal large-scale oil portrait of two young women and is a stunning example of the work by internationally acclaimed, South-East Asian artist Attasit Pokpong (Thailand, b. 1977). This painting measures 55.12 x 70.87 inches (140 x 180 cm), and is unframed and in perfect condition. This work belongs to the artist's ongoing"Portrait" series which all feature close-up images of beautiful young women alone or in pairs against monochrome backgrounds, painted in his iconic muted palette and with a close-up composition. Their soft gazes, as well as the muted tones of the work that are in high contrast the ultra-vivid red painted lips of the first girl, that all work together to invite the viewer to gaze upon their ethereal images, as if recalled from a memory or a dream.

Attasit Pokpong is considered one of the fastest rising stars of the art scene in South-East Asia and received his Diploma in Art from Rajamonkong Technology Centre, Bangkok, Thailand. Attasit belongs to a new generation of Thai contemporary artists who are making their mark both in Thailand and throughout Asia and the world. In May 2009 Attasit had a major exhibition in Shanghai, and then again in Paris in November 2009. His unique style has attracted considerable international attention, prompting exhibitions in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, France, the U.K., in Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, China, Singapore, Thailand), Australia and in New York and Los Angeles in 2010. The artist lives and works in Thailand.
