Images of a Thai artist


Surrealistic art is not my cup of tea.  I see plenty of irrationality in the world around me, and don’t seek it out in art.  But I like the images in these videos, which promote the book, Transcending Thai Realism: the Art of Somphong Adulyasarapan, by my e-mail pen pal Jack Clontz.   He is a hugely learned scholar and translator who lives in Bangkok, whom I got to know as a fellow member of the Bertrand Russell Society.

His book on Somphong can be ordered through the Museum of Contemporary Art (click on the link) in Bangkok.   The price of the book, 1,600 Thai baht, is about $52 in U.S. currency.
