   Manit Srisuwan is a Thai artist living in Bangkok, who has dedicated his life to painting. He has a BFA & MFA in painting & has been working as a professional artist for over 10 years in a semi-realistic, Pop-Surrealism style. His work evokes the symbolic visions from dreams.

Grounded wooden forms

The feminine taking flight

Enlightened dreamer

   Manit recently completed his fourth solo show, "SHE" at The National Gallery in Bangkok, Thailand. The show focused on the feminine, desire for flight, freedom & change, while accepting the arrows of outrageous fortune that necessarily come along with a flight path less taken. This marks a major thematic shift for the artist whose work over the previous 8 years dealt with distorted human figures as wooden drawing puppets suffering their "gam" or karma.

   Like most Thai people, Manit is known to his friends by his nickname - "Goft". I'd like to thank Goft for taking the time to answer my questions.
