How many times have you pushed “Up” on an elevator button and gazed mindlessly at a slightly warped reflection of yourself, staring back at you? The answer is too many times, countless times.
Which is why we’ve taken even this small detail at BYD Lofts and strived to make it an experience — take a peek at this gorgeous painting creating onto the once-plain canvas of our penthouse elevator door.
Let us introduce you to Khun Suthirak, an artist who developed his signature style into an extremely popular and highly distinctive style of painting that graces the walls (and an elevator!) of BYD Lofts. Suthirak’s style is characterized by heavily applied layers of paint, using brush and trowel and splashing. He favors bold, bright primary colors for the most part which reflect his irrepressible, larger-than-life personality. Occasionally, when so moved, he will employ more sensuous, erotic, pastel shades and with mixed media as well, lending an extra dimension to his work.
The large canvases distinct to Khun Suthirak’s art conveys his vibrant energy, as well as the power, drama and excitement of his work.
Enjoy these glimpses of more of Khun Suthirak’s work from around BYD Lofts in Phuket, or, even better — stop in to peruse and enjoy these works of art in person. BYD Lofts is in fact the center of Suthirak’s artistic activities, with his paintings spread from the lobby to the restaurant, hallways, and staircases. Originally, this unique setting for a artwork was meant to merely be a small showcase of Suthirak’s pieces. However, it was quickly apparent that the incredibly popularity of his work called for a broader concept of presentation, and thus BYD Lofts became not only a boutique hotel, but also an art gallery.
