SFA Projects is pleased to present works by artist Attasit Pokpong during the month of August, as part of SFA’s Chelsea Summer Viewing Room series.
With an impressive international resume of shows dating back to 2004, Attasit Pokpong’s work has left a prominent mark on the Asian aesthetic. His signature figures display a pop-art inspired approach to realistic portraiture; characterized by East Asian features and strong colored lips that contrast the blurred soft skin.
Unforgettable eyes hide deep nuances beyond the surface. Over the years he became inspired to move into a different direction; one that would lead to oil painting and the iconic faces his work has become known for. His fascination with the face of the Sino-Asian woman, particularly the lips, coupled with the sharp technique of contrasting textures has evolved over the years into a prolific aesthetic.
The mood of his work is hauntingly seductive; porcelain-delicate skin harmoniously clashing with attention-seeking lips. He has had exhibitions in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Paris, Dublin, Edinburgh, Brussels, Japan, and New York; participating in different art fairs, such as, Art Basel Switzerland 2012, Paris Art Fair 2014, Asia Contemporary Art Show in Hong Kong 2014, Palm Beach Art Fair 2014, Art Taipei 2015, The Chelsea Art Show, Art Ireland Autumn Collection, The Edinburgh Art Show, The Cork Art Fair.
