Over the past ten years Wattuya has steadily confirmed the originality of an oeuvre that is simultaneously intuitive and analytical. Tackling subjects such as politics, sexuality, identity, he achieved to hustle most taboos in Thai society. Most of the paintings in this show have never been displayed and come from Tawan Wattuya’s most secret inspirations. Exhibition curator: Myrtille Tibayrenc
