The above acrylic painting on canvas is called:
“Tai - Civilize”. The size is 200 x 250 cm. This painting won the supporting second prize from Krung Thai Bank in the 60th National Art Exhibition in 2014. The artist who created this painting is Tanupon En-on. The main concept of this painting is to create the ideal space to reflect the prosperity in the land of Suwanabhumi by imitating the ancient ways of making maps and charts.    

Tanupon En-on is currently an assistant professor at the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Mahasarakham University in Mahasarakham Province. He is also a guest lecturer for some universities in Mahasarakham, Khon Kaen and other provinces in the northeast of Thailand.

During the interview, Tanupon showed me some of the paintings he made for art exhibitions in 2016 - 2018.

Here is the interview:

JY: Would you tell us about your inspiration and interest in art?

TE: Most of my source of inspiration derives from anything around me especially nature and the way of life in northeastern region of Thailand. My goal is to portray the positive contents like beauty and virtue. When I was young, drawing and painting interested me so much. Years later, I decided to study art at Khon Kaen University and then Silpakorn University in Bangkok.    


JY: How about your lifestyle?

TE: Besides making art and giving lectures, I love having fun, doing some experiments, going on adventures and talking to people. I feel that simplicity is the best concept of living for me as I am the viewer of nature. And I also like reading.


JY: What is your opinion on art?

TE: Art is regarded as the evidence of mankind’s civilization in thought and the concrete result from observing, contemplating, surveying and examining the surroundings which could lead to the creation of art or pictorial language reflected through artworks.
