Thai Traditional Painting

Read PDF ⬆️


Painting may be one of the most recognizable forms of artistic expression. Since prehistoric times, mankind have been using lines, shapes, and colors to tell stories and express themselves. Countless styles of painting have emerged across regions, cultures, and time periods.


Thai traditional painting is intrinsically tied to the way-of-life and beliefs of the Thai people. Paintings reveal the characters of the Thai people: their spiritual reverence, artistic skills, finesse, and ability to adapt influences from different cultures. 


Thailand Foundation invites you to explore the world of Thai paintings through this informative and beautifully designed book published by the Fine Arts Department.
