Chatchai Notananda creates his artworks primarily with acrylic, airbrush, and spray paint on linen or canvas. Notananda was born in Thailand and lives there today – as such, his art mainly comments on Thai contemporary culture. In addition to this, Notananda soaks up the natural, rural scenery of Thailand, and renders it into his abstract artwork. Notananda makes sure not to take everything he sees at face value, often noticing that there may be other meanings and stories hiding beneath the surface. Notananda then aims to reduce the forms he retains in his inner thoughts into the visual language of abstraction. What we see on the canvas is the landscape of Notananda’s mind, his chosen dialect of communication with his viewer. Notananda received a Masters of Visual Arts at Chiang Mai University, and is now a PhD candidate in addition to his career as an artist. In his spare time, Notananda DJs and enjoys experimental music.
