Puritat Deangharm is a successful contemporary urban portraiture artist from Thailand who has made his mark on the international art scene establishing himself in many areas of the globe. The artist’s distinct, large-scale paintings have become widely recognisable, particularly over the past five years as his popularity has continued to grow.

The boldness and vibrancy of colour instantly draws the eye to his paintings but equally appealing is the subject matter presented and the method in which these paintings are composed. Puritat binds both eastern and western cultures, drawing upon influences such as monumental buddhist sculpture, urban street art murals, Japanese Manga, Silver Age comics and female subjects from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. The artist’s signature style is created by collaging comic book pages onto the canvas upon which he then paints a portrait and finishes with a screen-printed layer of linear pattern.

The portraits often depict females who project an air of strength and directness; you can imagine them as larger than life characters from a graphic novel but are more often a representation of people from the real world. Ultimately, Puritat has successfully created a visual language which crosses cultural boundaries and is admired by many collectors and art lovers worldwide.
