Seng Soun Ratanavanh

Born in 1970 - Lao People's Democratic Republic


Seng Soun Ratanavanh is an artist born in Laos who lives and works in France.

Japan, a fasciting but also disturbing country, is central in his work. Its complexity resides in the fact that it has various faces (art, gastronomy, tradition but also modernism) which blend with the numerous stereotypes of the japanese culture in western countries.

In his paintings, Seng Soun Ratanavanh questions the notion of strong but intouchable identity of the land of the Rising Sun by enlightening its numerous different characteristics.

Thus he uses without distinction images of the "kawaii" culture and esthetic (which means cute), as much as images representing Japanese tradition (geisha, engravings, origami, sushi), or urban Tokyo landscapes.

Seng Soun Ratanavanh emphasizes the contrast of an ambivalent society: on the one hand a society that is deeply attached to an omnipresent culture and tradition, and on the other hand, a society that is constantly racing with technology and modernism. He expresses it in a pictorial technique that is very pure, but rich in details and cliches.
