Niam Mawornkanong


Niam Mawornkanong

Surachai Mawornkanong. also known as Niam Mawornkanong, is an established Thai artist specializing in intricate painting that often projects a quality reminiscent of well-assembled oil works. He used his art to captivate audiences’ attention then set them free to explore their own subconsciousness.

Though possessing degrees in philosophy and fine art, the majority of his technique is self-taught and compliments the fact that he is colorblind. His work also displays a versatile vision ranging between abstract principles and realistic portraiture.
