Abstract Painting Exhibition
By Charoon Boonsuan
4 June - 12 July 2013
People's Gallery P1 - P3, 2nd floor

Charoon believes in experimenting his arts with various methods until one realizes the suitable method for oneself and stick with that method. He once experimented with abstract paintings right after he graduated from Silapakorn University as he wanted to challenge himself by doing something that was different from what he usually does. Abstract paintings, therefore, were born but were later discarded because he knew right away that "it was not my way". Hence this "Abstract Painting" exhibition at BACC represents what he did as a young artist and what is unlikely for him to ever go back and do it again.
