About This Artist
An expressionist artist bursting with exuberant brushstrokes and vibrant colours reflecting his fast-paced demeanor, Sarawut Yasamut counts himself as lucky to know what he has always wanted to do with the support of his father.
Sarawut holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Painting graduating from Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi and worked as a teacher for 6 consecutive years before earning his Master’s Degree in Applied Arts from the Faculty of Decorative Arts, Silpakorn University. His experiences and studies led him to successfully participated in 30 group exhibitions and 5 solo exhibitions
He draws inspiration from his surroundings. Some of his best-produced work was inspired from creatures in nature such as the painting of an abstract butterfly. Inspiration comes easily to Sarawut. His vision came from the understanding that a butterfly doesn’t have to fly thousands of kilometres to find its happiness, unlike the hawk or eagle. The butterfly’s simple happiness can be found in the little things in life such as having a loving family.
As a young artist, Sarawut has always believed in the power of social media and the Internet. He understood that the lack of exposure made it difficult for artists to showcase their work to the world. By all means, the increase of social media within today’s world has given these artists the opportunity to channel their energy to various platforms with to attract more viewers and buyers.
Sarawut exhibited his newest paintings at The Living Art Festival in Phuket under the theme Peranakan. The artwork featured a piece inspired by a Southern woman in her ‘Baba Yaya’ patterned outfit carrying a Chinese-style food carrier while she is surrounded with flowers from Phuket and Indonesia, titled ‘Sao Phuket’.
