A leading figure in the art and Internet movement, thirty-year-old Thai artist Korakrit Arunanondchai, amalgamates pop-culture, music, and his Thai origin in his pieces. He plays with the paradoxes and oxymorons of growing up in Bangkok and identifying as a Buddhist and finding his artistic career in America and adopting a more liberal western morality. He represents the dialectic between our conscious self and perception versus our unconscious sentiments in his abstract, all encompassing horror vacui installations. Arunanondchai was born in the capital city Bangkok in 1986. He grew up with four brothers in a privileged family; his grandfather was a Thai ambassador to America, France and Vietnam. He noted in an interview with VICE Magazine that his teenage years were defined by being in a semi-famous band in which he was much more handsome and talented than his band counterparts, according to famous Thai record label GMM, so, they split up. Arunanondchai is currently a superstar in the art world.
