Celebrated Thai contemporary artist Natthawut Singthong created six paintings which was exhibited in Kuala Lumpur alongside his famous bridal images in 2009 illustrating cropped images of faceless men holding different masks in each work. Depicted in black and white, Natthawut’s style of painting in charcoal generates a mysterious quality that is fuzzy in appearance and is almost dreamlike.
Natthawut Singthong graduated with a B.F.A. (Painting) from Chiang Mai University, Thailand in 2003. His solo exhibitions included From Bang-Kra Thing to the Spiritual Forest and Places in Between, Singapore (2006), A Black Horse in the New Moon Night, Thailand (2005), and Recent Works by Natthawut Singthong, Thailand (2004). He has also participated in several group shows such as Signed and Dated: Our 10th Anniversary at Valentine Willie Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur (2006), 3 Young Contemporaries (Gray Thought), Kuala Lumpur (2005), and Motel Project, Thailand (2003).
