Proudly representing internationally acclaimed masters of fine art.
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. Beginning each masterpiece by carving into wax, Sunti’s forte is capturing life, emotion, and spirit in his subjects. His expertise in human skin texture and tone, as well as facial anatomy, allow Sunti to create bronze portraiture of unparalleled perfection.
The most highly regarded sculptor in Thailand, Sunti received an Honorary Doctoral Degree in Creativity & Innovation from Rajamangkala University of Technology, Bangkok in 2017. In 2020, Sunti was awarded an Honorary Doctoral Degree in Fine Art from Rajamangkala University Issan. His commissioned sculptures of religious dignitaries, celebrities, CEOs, and royalty, including His Royal Majesty King Bhumipol Adulyadej, have led to national awards including the Honorable Citizen Award in 2016 and in 2019, National Artist of the Year by Howe Magazine 2015, and Alumnus of the Year by Rajamangkala University of Technology Klong Hok. In 2020, Sunti received the Pet Rajamangkala Award as well as the Nopparat Rajamangkala Award.
