Apichaya (Piya) Wanthiang (1987, Bangkok) is an artist. She received her BA from Sint-Lukas Brussel (2009) and an MA in Fine Arts from Bergen Academy of Art and Design (2012). Her practice consists mostly out of painting, video, immersive installation and text dealing with slow time and the construction of (fictionalized) places. Her interest lies within the small and the anecdotal, with the aim of constructing a shared space. She had solo exhibitions at Martin Van Blerk Galery in Antwerp (2009), Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen (2012), USF-visningrommet in Bergen (2014), Sound of Mu in Oslo (2014), and Trykkeriet in Bergen (2015).

Currently she works full time on her art projects. She lives in Oslo.
