Thawul Praman is an established Thai artist living in Chiang Mai, who studied at Silpakorn University in Bangkok, graduating in 1988.
Thawul was the founding member of Cobalt Blue movement, producing images with the predominant use of cobalt blue, such as the Sleeping Buddha we now offer.
Thawul was commissioned to paint the backdrops of the movie "Mortal Kombat" and the ballroom of the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok.
He has the rather dubious honour of having his style, technique, rock-grain effects and subject matter copied by many younger artists throughout Asia, but is known as the originator of this style of work.
Concentrating on depicting the Buddha, and more recently the Wats (temples) of Thailand with their dappled colours, Thawul captures the serene beauty and peaceful qualities of Thai Buddha images, by moving away from purely photographic representation into the realm of hightened awareness by the use of colour.
Some of his images are strong, secure yet others are quite whimsical... but they are all beautiful.
