Sanit Phokrachang

Growing up in the rice fields of Ang thong, the central fertile region of Thailand, Sanit spent his childhood in the countryside absorbing the sights and sounds of nature. His interest has always been in art and culture, and, after graduating from high school, he decided to pursue his dream by enrolling in Lad Krabang College of Fine Arts. He then obtained a BA in Fine Arts from the most prestige art college in Thailand, Silapakorn University. Early in his career, he worked as an artist’s assistant in the field of painting and etching before discovering his talent for sculpting. For more than 16 years after this graduation, Sanit has been sculpting a variety of works ranging from wildlife, portraiture and contemporary art, from miniatures to monumental projects as high as 25 ft.
