Virut Panchasbuse

Artist biography

Bangkok-based Thai artist Virut is known throughout the world for his large-scale, intricately expressive collage portraits. Playing with pop-art style and concepts, Virut uses thousands of patches taken from fashion and adult magazines to create his larger-than-life artworks. He works layer by layer, selecting each clipping as he creates incredibly realistic skin tones and textures.

Virut enjoys exploring various facets of humanity through his work, celebrating his different characters’ ages, genders and ethnicities.

Following his first successes in solo exhibitions and accolades throughout different countries in Asia, Virut began exhibiting in Europe as well, to great acclaim. His artworks can now be found in high profile collections such as that of Italian fashion icon Luciano Benetton.
