A descendant of the last viceroy of Laos, Prince Tiao Nithakhong Somsanith (b. 1959) grew up surrounded by the courtly arts of painting, lacquer, and traditional embroidery. Exiled to France during the political strife of the 1970s, Somsanith returned to Laos in 2005 and now devotes his time to art and community with the mission to preserve and promote Laos' cultural and artistic heritage.
ArtXchange Gallery is showcasing a highly unique collection of Somsanith's work through January 29, 2022. Please contact us for private viewing appointments of The Impermanence of Life collection. Email email@example.com or call us at 206-839-0377.
