Artwork by Nopparat Khumpai

Nopparat Khumpai

The wall sculptures made by the hands of Nopparat Khumpai enchant with their lightness and their weightless forms. The sculptor succeeds in capturing the playfulness of filigree nature in his metal objects. Growing up on the fruitful banks of the Chao Phraya River in the centre of Thailand, it was his supposed destiny to follow into his father’s footsteps and cultivate the rich soils. But Khumpai recognised early on the aesthetic value of the nature, that surrounded him so lushly. After graduating from the local village school, he decided to learn the craft of the sculptor and worked in various workshops of regional artists before it took him to the lively city of Bangkok, where it is easier for an artist to make money and he can live off his passion. Still, he often longs for the blooming fields and free air of his homeland. The nostalgia is his most important source of inspiration, and that is how the stunning wall sculptures are created as a loving homage to his childhood.

Nopparat Khumpai: I want to capture the beauty of nature.

What makes a work of art into something special?

When an artist pours passion into their work - and that is how it should be! - they then show their view of the world. I create sculptures inspired by nature and portray them how I see them. An artist reveals a part of themselves with an artwork and lets others see through their eyes. And that is something unbelievably exciting: for a few moments you can slip into the mind of someone else!

If you were not an artist, what would you be?

I would have spent my life working the fields like my father. Most of all though, I would have probably become unhappy at some point. For art is my life, my air. It is the food for my soul.

What are you working on at the moment?

A master chef does not reveal their next gourmet dessert!Of course, I cannot describe an exact object to you now because my ideas are sacred to me. But at the moment I am experimenting with different materials, combining those with various metals and testing their effect on me and my works.
