“Phuket Modern Art by Suthirak Chantragun”
A truly unique art gallery at Patong Beach, Phuket Modern Art. The gallery-unlike a conventional gallery- is splash of brilliant colour illuminating several public areas of the famous and luxurious ‘BYD Lofts’ apartment building.
Firstly it was aimed to decorate only in a lobby of BYD Lofts with for sale paintings by a popular Phuket artist, Suthirak Chantragun. Nevertheless his paintings have been proved wide spread through many years that Suthirak has made the BYD Lofts the centre of his artistic activity and, as well, his colourful pictures have spread from the lobby to the restaurant, hallways and staircases.

Suthirak is an experienced artist who has experimented with many art styles over his long years of painting, but, which has finally evolved into the extremely popular, unique and highly distinctive style of painting that we see today. It is characterized by heavily applied layers of paint, reminiscent of the ‘painterly style’, using brush and trowel and splashing. He favours bold, bright primary colours for the most part which reflect his irrepressible, larger than life, personality although, when so inspired, occasionally employs sensuous, erotic, pastel shades and sometimes mixed media as well, all of which adds an interesting extra dimension to his work. Suthirak’s art is always executed on a large canvas, which is necessary. A small canvas could not contain his vibrant energy. His work is powerful, dramatic, exciting, and emotional and often seems to explode from the canvas.
