Liberation by Utai Nopsiri


“Liberation”  solo exhibition of Utai Nopsiri
Utai Nopsiri returns to town with his latest works after having received huge success from the first solo show “Only Appearance” in 2007.

     Utai Nopsiri has been creating sculptures for over 10 years and was the recipient of several awards.  Introduced to 100 Tonson Gallery by Chatchai Puipia in 2006, we are very proud to have discovered and introduced to public, such strength of vision borne from Nopsiri’s conviction, dedication and energy.   After his first sold out show, Nopsiri has created the second series of abstract teak wood sculptures under the title “Liberation”.   Nopsiri's strength has propelled him into the international spotlight of contemporary recognition.

     In this exhibition “Liberation”, Utai Nopsiri continues his conceptual framework and artistic working process. Instead of using technology or any electricity-related tools, the artist created each sculptural element by hand and his craftsmanship. Viewers can appreciate every detail, having been done in precision and focus.

     “Sometimes when I’ve got some sparkling ideas, I somehow feel a paradox. It is as if I have a dual character, yet, either delicate or rough, the origin is the same”  
6 pieces of wood sculptures will be on view at 100 Tonson Gallery between  May 6th – June 6th ( every Thursday – Sunday, 11 am – 7 pm)

Artist  Profiles:
Born 1970 in Chachoengsao and lives and works in Nakornphrathom.  Nopsiri graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from Slipakorn University. Nopsiri's work is unique in that his large wooden sculptures are entirely painstakingly handcrafted without the use of electrical tools. He was lifted from obscurity after being discovered working in a tin shed-cum-studio in a bustling market just outside of Bangkok by 100 Tonson Gallery. After putting on his first solo show “ Only Appearance” Nopsiri received a great response from collectors and the art audience at large. Participated in group shows such as Beasts, Breasts & Beauty, Alliance Française Singapore 2008, and Showcase Singapore, in 2009.  He is now tipped to be one of the young up and coming artists to watch.  His awards include 3rd Prize (Sculpture), 51st National Exhibition of Art, Bangkok (2005). 2nd Prize, Krung Thai Bank Award, 52nd National Exhibition of Art, Bangkok (2006). Awards from two years of Toshiba's Brings Good Things to Life Art Competition. Entries selected for exhibit, three years of the National Exhibition of Art, Bangkok. He also took part in Art Project at the Thai Italian Art Space during 2000.
