Kitti Narod

b.1976, Thailand
Lives and works in Rome, Italy

Kitti Narod trained at Wittayalai Pohchang Art College in Bangkok, and later obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Rajamonkong Institute of Technology, Thailand in 2000. He has exhibited extensively both domestically and internationally in Singapore, London, Bath, Edinburgh, Manchester, Dublin, Cork, Montreal, and Melbourne.

Kitti Narod creates paintings that convey a sense of joy through gentle and warm portrayals of daily life and human relationships. In his figurative paintings, everyone and everything exist together in a utopia. This notion may seem unrealistic to some, especially during an era of social division, but the artist’s work tries to remind us to appreciate the simple pleasures and raises attention to everyday mundane matters, in which euphoric feelings do not seem so unattainable. The artist considers his works to be an intersection for diversity, where all physical and spiritual beings are equal.

Kitti Narod’s solo exhibitions include; “Summer Wind” at Tang Contemporary Art (Hong Kong Sar), (China, 2022); “Fragrant City: Kitti Narod Solo Exhibition” at Tang Contemporary Art, Bangkok (Thailand, 2021); “Roles in Life” at We Gallery, Shenzhen (China, 2020); “Joy Land” at Tang Contemporary Art, Bangkok (Thailand, 2020); and “Kitti Narod Exhibition by O‘logy” at PPP, Taipei, Taiwan (China, 2019).
