Art to Kamin Lertchaiprasert is a way of giving form to his questions about the meaning of life. An avid reader and a Vipassana meditator, his continuous inquiry has led him to study philosophy, religion, science, art, and culture.

For Kamin, art is a ritualistic practice that aims to achieve a greater understanding of oneself, nature, and the world as a whole. In his 1990 work, Time and Experience, the artist created a painting and print every day for a year. He painted by applying paint directly with his hands onto each canvas, wiping the excess onto his feet, which he then used to make the prints.

Solo Exhibition at Chan + Hori Contemporary

ArtAsiaPacific Web Review by Reena Devi:

Chiang Mai-based Kamin Lertchaiprasert is best known for his approach toward art as a spiritual quest. The first ten years of his practice, 
in particular, were based on questioning and searching for life’s meaning. The works that result from his meditative processes present a commentary on essential spiritual truths. For example, his installation Sitting (Money) (2004–06), acquired by New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2013, features 366 papier-mâchéd, meditating figures, pieced together from decommissioned Bank of Thailand bills. The seminal work addresses the disconnect between spiritual well-being and material wealth. While the theme of spirituality is nothing new in Thai contemporary art, with heightened global interest in the topic, particularly among the Instagram generation, Kamin’s works gain a new kind of relevance.
