Catalogue Note

"Since he grew up beside of the River of Kings, it's no surprise that the high water marks of his painting career have been inspired by this artery. Spanning the last three decades, Niti's "water works" are windows into Bangkok's dramatic transformation, with the early studies reflecting the river's serene flow, and the later ones showing today's stifling riverbank encroachment".
