Kitikong Tilokwattanotai

b. 1978, Lampang, Thailand
Lives and works in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Kitikong Tilokwattanotai is a popular artist working primarily in printmaking, painting and mixed media. His works observe graphic representations of text and alphabet. By abstracting calligraphic marks, Kitikong attempts to find beauty in the written language. He has chosen the mediums of colour and shapes to express his experiences in playing the varied roles and responsibilities that constitute his life. The emotions that have resulted from these experiences are the inspiration behind his latest works, articulated in the fluidity of the narratives he has chosen to express, reflecting on his work and contemplating the reasons behind these instinctual expressions. Kitikong’s works are held in several public and private collections including Tisco Museum Bangkok, Rachamankar Hotel, UNSW College of Fine Arts and Chiangmai University.

Kitikong also owns and operates Chiang Mai Art on Paper (C.A.P) Studio, a printmaking workshop that has grown from humble beginnings into a burgeoning business and creative hub. An accomplished printmaker and driven entrepreneur who actively encourages and promotes emerging artists, his practice is diverse in scope but held together by an enduring fascination with mark making and the endless possibilities of the print medium.
