You may be familiar with the works of the Great Masters, and more recently, pieces by Chinese artists, but what about closer to home? Talented Southeast Asians have been expressing themselves artistically, with unique aesthetic sensibilities. So head to the Singapore Art Museum and be introduced to Thai artist Natee Utarit. An exceptional painter whose career spans over two decades, Nateeâ€™s stunningly vivid paintings have been a series of dialogues and debates on established Western painting traditions, with the ultimate aim of developing new possibilities for painting. His latest creations have increasingly been commentaries on Thai society and identity. This exhibition features more than 70 of the artistâ€™s paintings drawn from SAM, the Bangkok University, the Queensland Art Gallery and private collections worldwide.
