Korakrit Arunanondchai

Country: Thailand / US

Artist Korakrit Arunanondchai (b. 1986) engages a myriad of subjects such as history, authenticity, self-representation, and tourism through the lens of a cultural transplant. Originally from Thailand, Arunanondchai now splits his time between Brooklyn and Bangkok. The artist’s work seeks to find a common ground in artistic experiences through a pastiche of styles and mediums. His interest in art was originally sparked through a study of music which expanded to include visual art whilst at NIST International School in Bangkok. He earned his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2009 and his MFA from Columbia University in 2012. He has had several solo exhibitions in the US and Europe, and has been featured in major group exhibitions at the Sculpture Center and the Fisher Landau Center. The artist made his solo museum debut at the MoMA PS1, New York, in 2013.
