From Thailand With Talent

Veerakeat Tongpaiboon is one of the most highly regarded painters of San Francisco. Since he arrived in the early 90s from his native Thailand, he has received wide praise for his ability to capture the edgy energy of the city.

He has been painting since he was 10 years old. He won three international competitions as a teenager. Encouraged by his family to follow a more practical path, he took his degree in design and worked with his brother, a Bangkok architect. In 1992 he came to San Francisco to live and work and further his education. He received his M.F.A. degree at the Academy of Art in 1994 and has been a fulltime painter since.

His work is in collections throughout the U.S. and abroad.
