improve the quality of art works and the abilities of the artists. I believe that a complete art education is the mixing between eastern and western knowledge which is interesting and impressive.
Piyawat Buaboon, a Thai artist who was born in the South, determined to study art in the North of Thailand. His passion is sculpting.. He works in a range of materials such as brass, copper, resin, stucco, sandstone and bricks. He is a sculptor who finds opportunities to present his works to five-star hotels, temples or any places that require tasteful three dimensional artworks.
Piyawat was born at Baan Song district, Suratthani province. He graduated from a college of handicraft in Nakornsrithammarat province. After that he moved to further his education at Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna in Chiang Mai province. In 2004, he was acknowledged by the institute as an excellent student in painting and sculpting.
His sculptures are found in some large hotels and assignments from the government. There are three dimensional models that are made of wood and glass as well. Some of these works are “a child who is riding a horse made from banana’s branches” and the sculpting of “a small child and elephants from stucco” to decorate hotels in Chiang Mai such as “Meritus” and “Four Seasons.” These works are inspired by Lanna tradition, geometry and his imagination. Piyawut said “Sculpting is the three dimensional art. If a sculptor does it well, people will accept it and feel happy. Otherwise, they will respond immediately that they did not like it after the first look.” Out of 6 students this year 4 are freshman and essaydragon.com/ 2 are in the second year of education at high school level
