Thitibodee Rungteerawattananon is a Thai Chinese conceptual artist in the tradition of the ‘Avant-Garde’ art movements of the mid-20th century. Born in Bangkok, Thailand, Thiti graduated from Silpakorn University in 2008 before launching into a conceptual art practice in the media of painting, installations and found objects.

Thiti is an artist of action. His first provocative and much discussed project was at Tate Modern, London, where he curated the toilet with art and sundries delivered by Thai artists in protest of the lack of east Asian representation in the gallery. This project, ‘Thai Message’, has since toured Thailand, Indonesia and Australia and is now a permanent collection of the Maiiam Contemporary Art Museum in Thailand.

Thiti is now based in Melbourne and brings his humour, intelligence and his keen eye for critique of the perilous mundane to the Melbourne art scene. In recent years, excepting international forays at Tungling Shopping Centre, Singapore and at Asean-Rok, South Korea, he has exhibited in Melbourne at Sol Gallery, Brunswick Temporary, Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, Counihan Gallery and was a finalist for the Wydnham Art Prize.
