© wtf gallery / wansavang yensabaidee

a graduate from king monkut's institute of technology ladkrabang in bangkokwansavang yensabaidee was initially in pursuit of a successful career as an architect as his family expected him to. but instead, the aspiring professional reinvented himself and became an artist by sheer choice, defying his middle class background and rethinking his future from a philosophical perspective. and now, he no longer engages in the space management of his previous training, but the management of the relationship between humans and their surroundings. as such, yensabaidee experiments with essential elements, colour, shape, lines, and working methods on flat dimensions, loosely based on existing painting traditions. for yensabaidee, painting is merely an activity, but one with a meditative edge. the artist's upcoming exhibition at wtf gallery, entitled intro essence, opens on sat – nov 26 [6pm], and presents a new body of colour-infused paintings. the showcase is supported by brandnew art project, an initiative that enables new artists to spread their wings. location: 7 sukhumvit soi 51 [sukhumvit].
