About Udomsak Krisanamis

Udomsak Krisanamis achieved recognition beginning in the 1990s for his distinct canvases with densely obsessive patterns created from collaged newsprint, dried noodles, cellophane, and paint. From initial restricted palettes, these paintings evolved to incorporate dizzying bands of texture and color, resembling artificial urban landscapes. In recent works, the artist has introduced what he describes as “shims,” brightly colored canvases of layered acrylic paint and newsprint embedded with wedges of found material, continuing a career-long experimentation with modernist ideas like the grid, abstraction, and Minimalism.
