Natee Utarit is one of the most respected painters of his generation, and Natee Utarit: Optimism is Ridiculous is perhaps the first, if not the best, comprehensive collection about the work of the Thai-born, internationally famous painter.
In Natee Utarit: Optimism is Ridiculous, Italian curator and art critic Demetrio Paparoni delves into one of the Thai maestro’s work series, Optimism is Ridiculous, to explore Natee’s unique aesthetics, inspired by 15th- to 19th-century Western-style art and symbolic elements of the modern day. The author also divulges the stories behind each painting.
