  • “My art is about people. When I see human beings, I sympathize; we all share the same happiness and sadness. It’s also about equality and space. Space means opportunity; we all need to share it equally, even if it sounds utopian. I don’t want to preach or moralize; I just hope that when people see my paintings they feel more connected.” —Kitti Narod


    Thai artist Kitti Narod paints light, joyful scenes, depicting the simpler pleasures in life through his work. He considers art to be a common ground and an equaliser, embodying this essence in the figures he paints without expressions, all in the same smooth and sleek tonal palette with similar body language, facing towards the same direction. However, the composition is far from monotonous – the group’s vibrant clothing, together with the playing of different instruments, captures a scene of synchronised yet simultaneously diverse individuality. Conveying a sense of optimism through his warm portrayals of daily life and human connection, Trumpeters is a radiant scene of balance and harmony.


    Narod trained at the Wittayalai Phochan Art College and obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Rajamonkong Institute of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand. He has exhibited extensively in Bangkok and internationally, including in London, Edinburgh, Singapore, Montreal and Melbourne. In August 2020, Tang Contemporary held a solo exhibition of his works, Joy Land, in Bangkok.
