Artist: Bundit Puangthong

Melbourne based Thai artist, Bundit Puangthong mixes his training in traditional Thai painting with his interest in graffiti and Pop art to create colourful, large-scale paintings which explore his cultural identity. After captivating audiences with his childhood stories during his Art Club sessions in 2020, Bundit returns for this series of workshops, inspired by his family history in puppet making.

Bundit lives and works in Melbourne and has recently completed a large-scale mural in Melbourne as part of the Flash Fwd laneway project.
