Vasan Sitthiket

Vasan Sitthiket (b. 1957) is one of contemporary Thailand’s most prominent and socio-politically engaged artists. Confrontational and very often controversial, his works address problems and hypocrisy within Thai and international societies, taking aim in particular at the intersection of greed, politics, and religion. Employing a variety of media to express his opinions, his body of work includes painting, drawings, woodcut prints, installations and performance art.

In addition to numerous shows in Thailand, Vasan has participated in frequent shows abroad, including the Venice Biennale in 2003. He was awarded the Silpathon Award from the Thai Ministry of Culture in 2007, and his works have been collected by New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), Thailand’s National Art Gallery, the Queensland Art Gallery in Australia and the Singapore Art Museum.

Vasan lives and works in Bangkok and Nakhon Sawan, Thailand.
