Artist Profile: jitti jumnianwai

I saw this guys work while I was in a small boutique in Rome. Jitti is one of the only artist I've seen coming out of Thialand, and his work seems to resemble a lot of where he comes from. Jitti was born in 1980 in Lumpang, Northern District. He studied there before entering the Fine Arts Faculty of Chiang Mai University from where he graduated in 2004. A number of his pieces of art have been exhibited locally.He claims that his artistic inspiration stems in part from the toys he played with when a child, and in his paintings he wants to express the happiness he felt when a child.His technique is dry point, and his paintings, each showing minute detail, often require as many as seven layers before completion.
