Internationally acclaimed sculptor, Sunti Pichetchaiyakul, is among the world’s leading artists of portraiture and of hyper-realism. An award winning member of the Portrait Society of America, Sunti is recognized for redefining realistic art, with lifelike detail never before seen in bronze and by way of old masters techniques. The most highly regarded sculptor in Thailand, Sunti has been selected to sculpt religious dignitaries, celebrities, CEOs, and royalty; including His Royal Majesty King Bhumipol Adulyadej. While Sunti’s sculptures are showcased in temples, museums, and private collections throughout the globe, he has been interviewed on over 80 national news and television shows in Thailand, America, Canada, Korea, Japan, and Cambodia, including CNN World and America’s TODAY show.
In 2012 Sunti was awarded “Best of Show” at the Calgary Stampede Western Showcase centennial celebration, branding him as one of the top sculptors of North American. Other respected juried art shows that Sunti has participated in include Mountain Oyster Club in Tucson, Safari Club International Convention in Las Vegas, and the Charlie Russell Art Show & Sale in Great Falls, Montana. Sunti is also a winner of the world’s largest art competition, ArtPrize, placing fourth out of every artistic medium and first in sculpture, competing against 1,582 artists from 39 countries and 42 U.S. states. In his home country, Sunti was recently awarded “Alumnus of the Year” by Rajamangala University of Technology in Klong 6 Bangkok and will be receiving an honorary PhD from Bangkok University in 2017.
In addition, Sunti is recognized as perhaps the world’s fastest quick sculptor; creating a life-size clay bust from a live model in only 15 minutes.
