Pairoj Wangbon is an artist who specializes in abstract two-dimensional fine art. He originally used living beings in nature as an inspiration to create semi-abstract art which gradually went into profound abstract with internal movement. His work included texture using scraping and wiping to compose the light to replace where the color was missing: this has become the artist’s signature. Combining imperfect elements together, a perfect harmony was born in line with the rules of nature: nothing is perfect, and everything withers as time goes by. His work truly brought about meaning and essence of life.
