The works by Asian artists continue to delight. This metal sculpture titled “Pixelated Heaven” by Thai artist Tawatchai Puntusawasdi (b. 1971) references anything old and some thing new.
The sculpture appears to be that of the roofs noticed in a lot of Buddhist temples in Thailand, although the pixelated image references that of modern day age.
The pixel-art movement has gone on for a even though now, and it is good to see them in sculptural form. Crazyisgood.

# Tawatchai Puntusawasdi
b. 1971 Bangkok, Thailand
+ 1993: BFA Sculpture, Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiangmai University, Thailand
+ 2001: MFA Sculpture, Silpakorn University, Bangkok
Tawatchai Puntusawasdi (b. 1971) pursued his art education at Chiangmai University (BFA), and then Silpakorn University (MFA). Based in Chiangmai, he produces architectural three-dimensional sculpture in tough-wood, slate, organic fibres, and numerous sorts of metal. In his Tilted series, ongoing considering that 2002, the artist plays with visual perception and physical balance to challenge audiences’ understanding of volume and space. In so doing, Tawatchai prods his viewers to consider philosophical and spiritual questions, his sculpture/installations translating complicated concepts about uncertainty and transcendence into tangible type. His works also revolve around ideas of reality, so tangentially referencing Buddhist considering. A student of the seminal Thai artist Montien Boonma (1953-2000), Tawatchai marshals formal elegance and grandiose scale to make works that are simultaneously cerebral and visually seductive. Tawatchai has exhibited in Japan, the United States, Europe, Australia, Taiwan, and wider Southeast Asia. He has participated in both the Venice and Sydney Biennales and has twice been awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant.
