Kongphat

Kongphat Kongphat is one of the leading figures in the Lao art world. He is known not only as an artist, but also as an influential promotor of Fine Arts in Laos. He organizes exhibitions, hosts workshops, writes articles and teaches at the National Faculty of Fine Arts.

As an artist Kongphat is most famous for his surrealist works. Multilayered, emotional and detailed, often featuring his signature use of deep color tones. Kongphat’s paintings capture a very personal and alternative perspective on life in Laos. They take the viewer on a journey through events in the artist’s life, which are also said to represent Laos’ national struggle.

Kongphat’s paintings have been exhibited in Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Singapore and are part of several private collections across the world. His most recent series of paintings is available exclusively at Laos Art Gallery. It features portraits, landscapes and intricate surreal scenes, painted with oil on different types of paper. The varying textures of the paper, from rough rice paper to recycled material, add interesting effects to the work.
