Pongdams studies in painting began under the tutelage of Prof. Silpa Bhirasri at Silpakorn University.
Pongdam continued his education at the Academia di Belle Arti di Roma in Italy in 1961. Upon returning to Thailand, he regularly created paintings and prints, and was among the first in a group of Thai artists to introduce printmaking techniques to the public. He was declared an artist of distinction for his printmaking in 1981, and was awarded the title Academico Onorario Classe Incisione from the Italian government through the LAccademia Florentina delle Arte del Disegno.
His artworks explored ideas of nature, ways of life, and the Thai rural spirit through simple human and animal symbols expressing themes of warmth, affection, and love. Usually foregrounding his paintings with animal subjects, his backgrounds consisted of landscapes such as temples, churches, vihara, heritage sites, local villages, fields of rice, gardens, and forests. Prayat harmonized these themes and techniques within the unique character of his woodcut techniques.
Using line, colour, and composition, Prayat blended plainness, purity and sincerity with nature, religion, and the folk cultures of rural societies. The artwork is in perfect original condition.
The painting has been made in oil with mixed media, perhaps elements of tobacco leaf, including very fine string threads. The painting is signed in red, at the foot of the painting.
The painting is created on board measuring 630mm x 447mm, and the frame measures 733mm x 578mm. The frame is in excellent condition with only the tiniest of minor blemishes. For examples use the following internet search criteria.
