Exhibition Information

The Conquer exhibition, the solo exhibition by Verapong Sritrakulkitjakarn or Ayino. This time is a large collection of oil paintings. Which shows the possibilities of the world and life that are changing, complex, diverse. Which Verapong believes that beneath many things there is a truth hidden. The truth that will never change even after a long time has passed. Use straightforward drawings, no instructions, and no pre-drafting. Instead, draw by interacting directly with what you see and what you feel in the work. not intended to tell a particular story. Verapong way of working was as important as his artistic point of view understand work and life. He believes that working to do not taking the result as a setting, so that to do little by little the truth will be touched.

Are we doomed to repeat the past, or can we learn from it? This is the question posed by the works of Thai artist Verapong Sritrakulkitjakarn. In nearly a hundred large-scale paintings, he makes montages of different moments in time. His epic and irreverent style offers unique snapshots of history.

Verapong’s works resemble battle paintings: they’re dark, crowded, and full of tension. Oversized characters dominate the scene; they represent values such as persistence, honor, and bravery. But these goliath figures are set alongside flashy signs of modern life and consumerism, pop elements that create a striking contrast of values and aesthetics—its a reflection of our existence and the diversity of human values.

Verapong doesn’t sketch or create drafts. He begins each work with an outline of the main character, done using his paintbrush. Over the course of about two weeks, he fills in the other elements. His technique varies, and some aspects are more realistic and three-dimensional, while others are bright and flat. “It’s an efficient way of discerning what’s real and what’s an illusion”
