1972, Nakorn Srithommarat (Thailand)
Silawit Poolsawat finds his inspiration during his long wanderings in Bangkok . His models are mainly women and children whose expression deeply marked him and whom he asked to photograph them. The use of acrylic allows him to transcribe this sense of imminence and spontaneity, capturing the expression of the model that he engraved in his memory. Through her portraits, Silawit offers snapshots of her life and her gripping view of others.
Silawit is the author of many portraits, mainly of women. It is indeed in them that he finds the faces most apt to communicate an expression, a feeling, a real sensitivity. In order to bring a new approach to the art of portraiture, he combines his natural intuition as an artist with a style influenced by Western techniques in order to convey the emotions of his models.
