Piyatat Hemmatat was born in Bangkok, Thailand in 1976. At the age of 14 he moved to London to complete his secondary education. He then focused his increasing passion for painting and photography by earning himself a Bachelor’s degree in fine art from City and Guilds of London Art School, followed by a Master’s degree in visual art from Chelsea College of Arts. Piyatat gained considerable practical experience while working at a design studio in London. In 2007 Piyatat returned home to Thailand and established his own studio. Since then, his photographic explorations have been continually published and exhibited internationally.
