Nopchai Toi Ungkavatanapong (b.1959, Thailand) is a mixed-media and site-specific installation artist who creates artworks that explore the idea of finding a layer of meanings in objects. The subject matter in his works often revolves around the re-interpretation of consumerism and human's existence and phenomenon. Thailand's native, he received his Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from the Art Academy of Cincinnati, the U.S.A. in 1985. While working as a museum assistant, he earned a Master's degree in Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati in 1987. In 1998 in Bangkok, Nopchai and a group of friends initiated and founded "Nuts Society," the artist collectives well-known for their subversive works that merged art into the consumerist culture. This collective attempts to raise public awareness of social issues through art objects and art related activities. Nopchai has been a lecturer in the Faculty of Painting Sculpture and Graphic Arts, Silpakorn University in Bangkok since 2005. In addition to his teaching, the artist continually exhibits and installs his works throughout Thailand and in many countries. He participated in artist residencies such as Ecole Nationale d'Arts de Paris-Cergy in Cergy, France, Gresol Art in Girona, Spain, and Headlands Center for the Arts, U.S.A. He was awarded "Aid to Individual Artist Grant," U.S.A. in 1986 and 1990, "National Endowment for the Arts," U.S.A. in 2001. And in 2005 and 2017, he was awarded Silpa Bhirasri creative Grant for Excellence Artist from Silpakorn Art Centre, Bangkok. Nopchai is nationally and internationally recognized for his experiments of media, neon lights, objects, and stereoscopic photographs.
