Anupong Charoenmitr




b. 1981, Thailand

Born in Bangkok in 1981, Charoenmitr graduated with a BA in Fine Art of Photography from Rangsit University and an MBA in Fine Art from Silpakorn University, both in Bangkok. He makes work that draws on observation and experience that are rooted in being true to life.

Charoenmitr starting making film and video art in 2012. The critic Sakarin Krue-On has written, “His works express sharp ideas and reflect an impressive perspective, as well as skillful photographic technique. He has turned to video art to demonstrate and expatiate his surroundings through plain, simple but romantic methods.”

His works portray scenes which look like they might be from a scene on stage, with a narrative that is hinted at rather than explained, subtly revealing truths about life and its end that are often hidden.
