From the bustling city of Savannakhet, Laos to the quite musings of country town Albury, Australia; artist Phonsay Phothisomphane, draws from a life of balance and contrast to create surreal minimalist images via painting, photography and digital editing.
Having discovered his artistic talents from an early age, Phonsay slipped seamlessly into a career in graphic design and print management in Sydney. Back in a metropolis, he started playing around with architectural photography – a weekend pastime that quickly turned into a full-time endeavor.
In an unexpected twist to the genre of surreal minimalism; Phonsay naturally draws inspiration from his Buddhist upbringing. The lesson of balance and harmony that his father instilled in him since childhood has a playful role in his work.
