     Anupong Chantorn 
     (Bangkok, Thailand)
     Life in the Dark
     2009, pen on paper,
     97.5 x 67.5 cm
 
The promising Thai artist Anupong Chantorn raises questions about ideas concerning what defines a monk as good, deserving of respect or as an evil spirit resulting from bad karma. Monks with less than perfect behavior regularly make headline news. The young artist is considered one of the most controversial artists in Thailand. His paintings and drawings examine Buddhist beliefs in Thai society while unearthing what he believes are misconceptions of Buddhist traditions and principles of honesty.
