Sarawut chutiwongpeti (b. 1970, Thailand) is an artist based in Bangkok, Thailand.

Chutiwongpeti graduated from the Departement of Visual Arts, Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts from Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok in 1996. He has attended numerous workshops and residencies and has had exhibitions around the world. Chutiwongpeti's art project Wishes, Lies and Dreams focuses on the mechanisms of perception and dreams, the private world of fantasy and unconsciousness, the conditions underlying the system by which mind and spirit operates. At the same time, the visability of the structure ignites confusion on the viewers' perception of the work and of the space where it is placed, thus provoking an ambiguous relationship between the object, its function and its appearence. The artwork unlocks a mysterious force field on the border between truth and lie that is able to create unexpected angles of approach which in turn forece the viewer to take up a new position in the observation of the surrounding world.
