Khun Suthirak studied art at the Phuket campus, Prince of Songkla University commencing in 1985. Following a brief period when he worked in the galleries of other people, his driving ambition led him to branch out on his own as an independent artist, thus giving him the freedom to experiment with developing his own artistic style. He was born in 1967 and educated in Phuket and after his university training began his career in Phuket working for established galleries. He was not fulfilled working for other people, with their different ideas on art, and he felt stifled. So when he married he, and his wife, relocated to Samui in 1990 where they established a successful gallery together and Khun Suthirak was free to evolve his own distinctive style of painting.
SUTHIRAK’s art is mostly, but not invariably, executed on a large canvas, which is necessary to contain his vibrant energy. It is not discrete, quiet and retiring, to be hung in a quiet corner of your residence. It is powerful, dramatic, exciting, and emotional and seemingly explodes from the canvas. It is unmistakably SUTHIRAK, and demands to be the featured focus of a room. Nothing less will do. His work can be found in big hotels, top restaurants, and private residences all over Phuket and internationally. He has mounted several successful exhibitions both local and overseas, notably in the Sydney and Melbourne Art exhibitions of 2006 where his work aroused much comment.
