An art exhibition that promises to provide a window into the Thai way of life, “The Path - a journey through life” will be on at the Art Spice gallery from February 23.

The paintings on display are meant to reveal the Buddhist way of life from religious philosophy and symbolism to belief and faith. It is also an attempt to carry the viewer into an introspective world of the artists inspired by travel, philosophy and spirituality.

The paintings by artists Kampon Manojai, Likit Nisetanakarn, Preecha Rachawong, Songdej Thipthong, Suriyun Wongyota, Suwat Saenkattiyarat, Thanongsak Pakwan and Thanpisit Saenjan are also aimed at showcasing Thailand’s spiritual belief in Buddhism.

According to the organizers, this belief, called “The Path”, is a process to help you move beyond the conditioned responses that obscure your true nature. It is also about ultimately unlearning rather than learning and also describes the way to end the suffering. It is a practical guideline to ethical and mental development with the goal of freeing the individual from attachments and delusions; and it finally leads to understanding the truth about all things.

Together with the “Four Noble Truths” it constitutes the gist of Buddhism and this exhibition showcases this by the harmonious works of the artists.
