Wongsatorn Tanapathomsinchai’s (b. 1996) innovative approach to etching integrates this classical technique with a powerful prophetic message. His meticulous renderings present a dark commentary on the drama of deforestation and environmental disaster, evoking a sense of foreboding.
Wongsatorn’s interest in this theme is deeply influenced by Professor Yanawit Kunchaethong, Dean of the Faculty of Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts at Silpakorn University in Bangkok where he studied. Since the artist’s debut in 2018, his work has been widely sought after and exhibited at leading galleries and shows including the Indonesia International Print Triennial Competition, the Bangkok Triennale International Print and Drawing Exhibition, the Guanlan International Print Bienniale in China and the International Print Bienniale in Varna, Bulgaria.
