From the exhibition Nightflight
Peerawayt Krasaesom is an artist based in Bangkok, Thailand.
Peerawayt’s art practice is derived from his interest in, and processing of media and pop culture. His work occupies an undefined territory where mass culture is dissected and revealed in its grotesque glory. Peerawayt scrutinises the torrent of mass consumer culture, using his work to re-claim the pulsing murk of the natural world that has been glossed over.
After growing up in Surin Province, Peerawayt relocated to Bangkok to further his education. Graduating with a B.Edu (Art Education) from Chulalongkorn University in 2005, he has consistently worked and exhibited in Thailand ever since. He pursued postgraduate studies at King Mungkut’s Institute Technology Ladkrabang, achieving an MFA in 2014. His most recent solo exhibition, Classroom, was at the prestigious Bangkok Arts and Culture centre earlier this year.
Currently Peerawayt is an art teacher and advisor working with young offenders in the Thai justice system.
Nightflight is his first exhibition in Australia.
