Thai artists Pomme Chan and Suntur showcase their latest works in the exhibition “Illuminated Frames” showing at CentralWorld’s Beacon Zone from today until November 30.

 Pomme Chan or Thatchamapan Chanchamratsang, a Thai illustrator who has made a name for herself on the world stage, said she was inspired by the shape of an O, which is used as a symbol for CentralWorld. It represents “Global” and is used as the main feature in 12 artworks, each of which features a character from today’s world. The 12 characters include Glamorous, Sweet Sixteen, Street, and Traveller.

Popular illustrator Suntur or Yozanun Wutigonsombutkul says: “I believe everyone has a different personal passion and they have their own little worlds. Some people love fashion, some people like art and this is what I am trying to show through these illustrations.”

Suntur is known for simple lines in bright colours that tell the story of individuals, their preferences, optimistic views and good moods. He wittily brings stories from everyday life to the fore in a way that is easy to understand.

Pakorn Partanapat, chief operating officer of Central Pattana, opened the exhibition in the company of the artists and celebrities Virithipa Phakdeeprasong, Arak Amornsupasiri, Chitsing Somboon, Kongpat Sakdapitak, and Jirat Pornpanitpan
