“Puan and Seri”
Local artists, who passed their thoughts, experiences and knowledges from generation to generation and from teacher to student. Lampang is only one province in the northern part of Thailand that has a lot of beautiful shop signs, good materials and techniques, the most interesting shop signs in Lampang were signed the artists’ name at the bottom right corner, P. Suwannasingha and Seri, 2 Lampang great local artists.
Puan Suwannasingha (teacher 1897-1965) and Seri Sermsuk (student 1932-present) created more than 500 shop signs,t emple signs, Thai mural paintings, etc., around the northern part, Lampang, Payao, Nan and Chieng Rai. Today, there are a lot of their works appears while walking along the street in Lampang, the most distinguish part on the shop sign is TYPEFACE, beautiful and outstanding design and structure, all of their works are different from others.
I spent a few years in Lampang to collect, research and interview about Puan Suwannasingha and Seri Sermsuk, biography, life and works, to create “Puan and Seri Typeface” and manage “Puan and Seri Exhibition”. Both projects are tribute the the Lampang great artists, type designers and sign makers.
