Occasionally, when new artworks arrive, I am just stunned. I have to stop whatever I am doing and take the time to absorb the work. This doesn't happen often; when it does, it's a moment that makes me realise why I love art so very much.
This brings me to Pairoj Karndee, an artist who is now gaining recognition internationally.
Pairoj Karndee always creates artworks that I need to sit and contemplate, if for no other reason other than their technical brilliance.
He spends approximately one month on a painting, meticulously working away even at the smallest detail, to achieve what I regard as arguably some of the finest contemporary artworks anywhere.
Pairoj is also one of the most humble and gentle people I know. A devoted husband and father.
His humanity and gentle nature show through in the emotions rendered on the faces of his subjects.
Rather than say more, I would like to invite you to look at his latest work, Winter's Call, and the detail images added to this message. Amazing.
This is a major work (150cm x 120cm) and undoubtedly one of his finest.
