Lives and works in Bangkok
Tae Parvit expresses abstractions of reality through a myriad of means. Though practicing predominantly as a painter, his creative output has spanned the genres of animation, digital drawings, screen-printing, publication, music, performance, and to a lesser extent, mural painting as well. It is therefore unsurprising to find his paintings inflected with the characteristics of these varied genres, bearing nuanced traits of movement, textures, and narratives. Even though taking inspiration from personal experiences and the world around him, his works transcend merely being auto-biographical chronicles. Rather, he draws viewers into realms of colors that meld images, times, and stories in melodious harmony and counterpoint.
Although possessing limited formal training in the painterly tradition having graduated as a student of graphic design from the Swinburne University of Technology (Melbourne, Australia), Tae’s works demonstrate his masterful self-taught approach in the use of colors, scale, and composition to express particular moods and feelings. Regardless of whether painting spontaneously or following from his preparatory sketches, his completed paintings exude an energetic flood of consciousness that coalesce connections from the wellspring of the subconscious. And even across the other genres that constitute the entirety of his artistic practice, this palpable sense of energy has come to be a defining element – drawing audiences into a multi-sensorial environment generative of communal spirit and fellowship.
Following his graduation, Tae Parvit has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in both Thailand and abroad, including two solo exhibitions and one special project at Bangkok CityCity Gallery as of 2020. In addition, under the auspices of ‘Interesting Pictures’ – a self-publishing collective he co-founded – he has also produced numerous publications and artist books. His practice is represented in private collections around the world.
