Sandy or Nutnicha Chuchat (born 1990) makes oil, acrylic and digital paintings using figuration to explore the intricacy of what it is like to be a female and the ideas surrounding the notion of dreams and identity. She focuses on issues surrounding her life, particularly as a woman in the society. Her work is inspired by female surrealist masters such as Frida Kahlo and Dorothea Tanning. She speaks in a visual language that is explicable, mainly using symbolism to illustrate contemporary ideology of feminism.
Chuchat spent her childhood in Bangkok, where she currently lives and works. However, her interest in fine art started when she studied in Australia from 2006 where she was painting and exhibiting work in local galleries. She later moved to London and received a BA from Istituto Marangoni, but has put making art on pause. After coming back to Bangkok and worked as visual designer in fashion companies, she decided to go back to pursue fine art in 2018. Her revived art career kicked off with a couple of solo shows in small galleries which led to her joining group exhibitions hosted by collections of young and upcoming artists such as I WANNA BANGKOK and Broken English Society. She also started showing work in recognized venues in Bangkok such as River City and ATT19 and worked on some great collaborations over the years for clients such as Nestlé Thailand, The Mall Group and Pomelo Fashion.
