Paitoon Jumee: The Artist
Paitoon Jumee (b.1978) is a young contemporary Thai artist from Bangkok. Paitoon studied art at the Thai Vijitsil Art School 93-96 and ay Thailand’s prestigious Pohchang University 96-98.
Paitoon’s bold female portraits and stunning figurative male nudes are a real statement on the walls at Tusk Gallery. His pieces are highly sought after by collectors all over the world and don’t last long usually being snapped up within just days of completion. Tusk Gallery has been exhibiting the artwork of Paitoon Jumee for around 4 years.
Paitoon’s portraits contrast the masculine and the feminine – highlighting the delicate features of the female face including the neck, eyes, and jawline, whilst using masculine colours and raw textures. His pieces successfully represent elements of traditional Thai aesthetics whilst also maintaining a fundamentally contemporary feel that appeals to viewers all over the globe.
