Prateep Kochabua (1962-)
Prateep Kochabua is a surrealist artist originally from Bangkok, Thailand. He studied for a Bachelors degree in Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Silpakorn University, and later worked as an art director in an advertising agency from 1984 to 1992. In 1995 he had his first solo exhibition at the Bangkok National Gallery.
The Thai Museum of Contemporary Art published its first book “Destiny to Imagination” documenting Prateep Kochabua’s surrealist paintings and inspirations. The Bangkok-based Australian art critic Andrew J West provided the text for the 176-page, fully illustrated collector’s book printed for the exhibition.
Prateep has artworks in the collection of Bangkok billionaire, Boonchai Bancharongkul.
