Attasit Aniwatchon excels in the printing techniques
of lithograph and etching. The mystical spaces he creates in his
artworks convey a spiritual atmosphere to the viewers, stimulating
the imagination and various interpretations. Aesthetically, Attasit's
works are balanced and harmonious, yet without boundary.
In his early works, Attasit concentrated on the basic artistic
elements of color, form and space. Adopting an abstract approach
and a colorful palette, he explored the freedom of presentation
while studying how contrasting things exist in harmony.
After establishing his name in the contemporary Thai art circle,
Attasit entered the monk-hood, in order to gain a greater understanding
of Buddhist philosophy and spiritual wisdom. Attasit's later works
were apparently influenced by this experience, becoming more stable
and mature in working theme, while the specific artworks became
darker by adopting brown, gray, and black tones. The works represent
the Buddhist fundamental belief that all things are impermanent
- they rise and fall.
Attasit's prints also imply that one should look at the essence
of all things rather than being excited by the superficial appearance.
This notion is created by the artist's ambiguous spaces, surrounded
by what appears to be structures representing the construction of
the physical world that we know is ever changing.
In 1990, Attasit graduated from Silpakorn University, where he
is now a lecturer in the Graphic Art Department, He has successfully
participated in many international exhibitions and been awarded
for his high standards.
