Celebrated Thai watercolor artist Somboon Phungdorkmai visited Hanoi five times and stayed there more than 150 days altogether in the past two and a half years. She spent a lot of time studying the scenery with a great deal of zeal in order to capture the culture and the lifestyle. This is probably the reason why her works always catch the viewers heart. In this Hanoi Letter series, we find she had interest in the street workers in Hanoi more than in the sceneries. Her observation towards street workers is always warm and gentle. You can see her observation toward people with passion is so detailed and brilliant. Impressionable brush move will touch those who see her works.
In her breathtaking Angkor Wat Series, Somboon amazed us with the marvelous stone building of Angkor. Somboon painted beautiful lines of roof and buildings in Luan Prabang, Laos. The Canal of Rangsit series, she painted disappearing canals and house along the canal under early morning misty light. And now, Hanoi. Her compassion towards the disappearing South East Asian countries is obvious. She made large size of painting with r acrylic on Canvas. This time her exhibition includes her French husband Andre Lurdes photographs of Hanoi. Somboon always carries a sketchbook and black pen. Although she is a perfect and celebrated artist, she does not stop practicing her skill and continues to wonder how to express common subject effectively and differently form other artists.
Art lovers and collectors will have noticed, in Somboons past works, that she uses a unique watercolor technique, in which parts of the paper on which she is painting are left white; the parts of which form lines of objects, or highlight objects. Somboon has the creative genius of letting the paper work for her and this can be seen in many of her works in this exhibition as well.

The Letter from Hanoi is available from 23rd July (Wed.) to 16th August (Sat.) 2008 at Akko art gallery. For more information visit www.akkoart.com or call at 66 2 259 1436
