The Art of Pila Pansumrit

Pila Pansumrit is an Abstract Expressionist artist living and working out of Bangkok, Thailand. She studied Fine Arts at the well-respected King Mongkuts Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in Bangkok.

Throughout her artistic studies, Pila was always fascinated with the work of the American Abstract Expressionist artist Jackson Pollock. Pollock is most famous for his physical involvement in his work, and the subsequent dripping technique he utilised. Pila was influenced by this technique and has explored her own methods of dripping and action painting.

Pila is inspired by the environment around her, both in a personal and much greater sense. Her works evoke her own emotive experiences and perceptions of the world, whilst drawing on imagery of the universe – specifically the cosmos, and satellite imagery of the earth. Her mixture of dripping and sponging, as well as her clever use of colour contrasting reaffirms her works inclusion in the Abstract Expressionist realm.
