Pannaphan Yodmanee (b. 1988) is among the most notable young artists in Thailand today, achieving international recognition shortly after her debut in 2014. Pannaphan’s mesmerising works bridge cultures across time and space, combining found objects with natural matter such as rocks and minerals, and painted elements that recall both traditional Thai art and architecture and Western cultural sediments.
Her abstract works explore diverse cosmologies and universal themes of the human condition from the natural phenomena of time to loss, devastation, death and the Karmic cycles of birth and rebirth. Whether realised on canvas or in cement, Pannaphan's pieces embody her painterly, sculptural and architectural sensibility, demonstrating her mastery of all kinds of media.
Pannaphan was awarded the prestigious Benesse Prize at the Singapore Biennale in 2016. Her works have been exhibited at the Singapore Art Museum, Lyon Biennale and Bangkok Art and Culture Center, among others.
