Haritorn Akarapat is a Bangkok based artist, sculptor who uses shapes and figures with an incompa- rable sense of freedom formulating representation of mythologies that are both personal and rooted in Buddhist traditions. Born in 1961, after graduating from Silapakorn Uiversity, Akarapat started his career as a bronze sculptor showcasing his art in galleries and outdoors.
Akarapat’s work is easily recognizable as he developed a strong identity, exploring new ways to ap- proach the bronze and patina techniques.
The imprint of time in the matter not only expresses evolutionary search for pure form but it also highlights the complexity of thought that has gone into the making process, the emotional weight.
Haritorn’s work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions in Asia and Europe during the past twenty years, and held very noticed solo exhibitions with 100 Tonson Gallery and Tang Contemporary in Bangkok. He has been locally commissioned several major public bronze sculptures in temples, the Bangkok city center and the island of Koh Samed.
