Colorful Local Fine Art | Sakon Malee

Malee was inspired from the way of life he observed through rural Isaan society – a culture that gives high value to faith and beliefs through traditions that have been inherited. The presentation of the color scheme from Isaan loops, overlapping compositions tells the stories of people’s lives. The use of bright colors reflects another a feeling that the artist has towards Isaan culture: depicting its intricacies and the beauty of it.

Year created : 2019
Size : 140 W x 170 H x 2 D cm

Sukon Malee was an art professor teaching at Poh Chang college. “Taking this job made me responsible for the knowledge of my students and their creative development. My duty is to inspire them to make art – this allows me to personally develop my own skill sets as well,” Malee addresses his present career. As of now, the artist went back to university for a doctoral degree – remaining at home, in his comfort zone. This allowed him to directly experience ongoing social problems and changes that have been applied to his community. A mixture of local and metropolitan contexts have been combined in his mind.

More about the Artist

As an artist, the fun in art starts from the ideas. Visualizing the outcome and interpreting the process is what intrigues the artist to restart the process, hence producing consistent artworks. Sakon Malee’s creative works are inspired by local stories – from the way of life to the customs and beliefs that stem from Isan culture. Along with its good practices, the artist brings forth life lessons he learned from this part of his life and started producing contemporary art. He brings Isan color schemes into his paintings along with references to traditional murals or ฮูปแต้ม (Hoop Taem) paintings, found commonly in Northeastern Thailand. These structures slowly became a guideline for him to develop his own style and characteristics. 

His proudest achievement is the exhibition of Isan Murals that he participated in at the Bangkok Art and Cultural Center. His most prized moment, however, was winning awards – specifically his gold medal achievement at the Bua Luang Competition in 2018.
