ASEAN Artists is a collaboration of Thailand’s most defining group of Artists and Paintings. The exhibition will showcase works by six native artists of Thailand whom have been deeply inspired by the culture and traditions of the country. Unlike other exhibitions, ASEAN Artists’ aim is to tell the specific stories associated with each individual artist and painting. The inspirations from Thai Culture will no longer be lost in translation.
The Artists featured in ‘The 1st Annual Exhibition’ are Amalakaa Suwannahong, Cheeztapaul Ruxsasuthakarn, Naka Kanakrut, Worapol Nuanla-ong, Saroj Suksriroj, and Pramual Thungprue. Each Artist comes from a unique region of Thailand that is unknown to most tourists or travelers from Western society. Ian Pazgon, founder of ASEAN Artists, is a Thai-American dual citizen that was raised in Western Culture and works to preserve ASEAN Culture.
“The Artwork we present defines ASEAN Culture. Southeast Asia tells a story of Ancient Life and Exotic Environments. The 1st World kid inside of me is fascinated with the 3rd World stories that these Artists have to tell.” Ian Pazgon explains,
“The team and I translate stories from Southeast Asian languages into English. Unlike other galleries or art dealers, we work entirely towards building the Artist’s career. We believe that building valuable Artists builds a valuable company. I want to find the most talented Artists in the most remote regions of Southeast Asia. Original works from these types of Artists have the most amazing stories yet to be told in the World.
“In addition to the narration of each Artists Story, Ekachai Wannakaew (Mr. Penguin) will give a special discourse on ‘What it takes to be an Artist’ and ‘How to overcame the struggles of becoming a professional Artist in Thailand’.
