James Prapaithong

Wimbledon College of Arts

Born in Thailand, James is now an artist currently living and studying in London. He is currently studying for a master’s degree in painting at the Royal College of Art. His work explores the narrative created by interiors and the imprint of memories and movement a room may hold. Prapaithong’s paintings focus on memories and the absence of human figures creating a subtle sense of nostalgia and longing, leading the viewer to question the history of the interior they are seeing. Prapaithong’s cinematic composition and scale, combined with his photorealist rendering of these spaces, creates the effect of voyeuristically viewing a real space, intensifying the audience’s engagement with his paintings.
