“I invite you to embark on a journey into the world of artistry and emotion, much like the legendary Vincent van Gogh”

Mahnissa Maneerut



Vincent van Gogh’s life and art were deeply intertwined with his struggles, both emotional and physical. He wrestled with inner demons, yet his canvases revealed the vibrant landscapes and poignant portraits that sprang forth from his tumultuous soul. “Brushes of Resilience” assembles artists from around the world, each with their unique stories of pain and the transformative power of artistic expression.

The pain that these artists have endured is not just a narrative; it is an extraordinary wellspring of inspiration. Within their works, you will discover the echoes of their personal trials and tribulations, the tears that have been transmuted into vivid colors, and the anguish that has been sculpted into tangible forms. Just as van Gogh’s “Starry Night” reflects a turbulent inner world, this collection magnificently illustrates the incredible beauty that can emerge from the depths of adversity.

Through a rich array of mediums, from painting and sculpture to multimedia and installations, the artists featured in this exhibition invite you to delve into the profound depths of human emotion. “Brushes of Resilience” serves as a poignant reminder that art is not merely a reflection of the human experience but a transformative tool for coping, healing, and ultimately transcending pain.

As you explore these galleries, allow your own experiences and emotions to merge with the artworks. May you find solace, inspiration, and a rekindled appreciation for the remarkable capacity of the human spirit to create beauty out of suffering. “Brushes of Resilience” extends an invitation to see pain not as an obstacle, but as a wellspring of creativity, resilience, and the unyielding human will to transform adversity into art.

In “Brushes of Resilience: Inspired by Pain,” I invite you to embark on a journey into the world of artistry and emotion, much like the legendary Vincent van Gogh, who famously channeled his pain into timeless masterpieces. This exhibition is a tribute to the indomitable spirit that thrives in the crucible of adversity, where every stroke of the brush becomes a testament to human strength, creativity, and the enduring impact of soft power.

One noteworthy achievement was the organization of the “Turn Your Scars into Stars,” exhibition.

The first Thai Curator to feature artists’ work on LED screens in the heart of New York City.
