Pannaphan Yodmanee was born in Nakhon Si Thammarat in Southern Thailand in 1988. Her works combines found objects, natural elements such as rocks and minerals, and painted elements that recall traditional Thai art and architecture. Through her mesmerising abstract works, she explores Buddhist philosophy and cosmology; the natural phenomena of time, loss, devastation and death; and the Karmic connection of time as we are born and reborn.
In 2016, Yodmanee was awarded the prestigious Benesse Prize. She has exhibited at institutions such as the Singapore Art Museum, Bangkok Art and Culture Center, Thailand, Yuz Museum, China; and participated in the Lyon Biennale, France (2019), Bangkok Art Biennale, Thailand (2019), The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Australia (2018), and the Singapore Biennale (2016).
