Jirapat Tatsanasomboon

Artist Jirapat Tatsanasomboon

Jirapat Tatsanasomboon was born in 1971 in Samut Prakarn and completed his Master Degree at Silapakorn University in 1999. He applies a pop-art style to his subjects who often feature well known (super)heroes from cartoons such as Batman, Superman and Spiderman as well as science fiction movies. His heroes are depicted in a distinctive Thai setting and are often seen interacting with traditional Thai heroes and mythical figures, most of whom are characters in the Ramakien (Ramayana). Jirapat also takes on well known icons spanning from old master paintings to stars in the entertainment industry and American superheroes and puts them in a new, Thai context. He plays around with images of movie stars such as Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne and paintings by old and contemporary artists such as Robert Indiana, Keith Haring, Jeff Koons, Lichtenstein and Botticelli and transforms these well known icons by changing their appearances and putting them in a new and alien Thai setting. Jirapat has participated in several art shows in Thailand and also in Korea (2003), USA (NYC, 2006), Singapore (2008) and China (Olympics, 2008).
