Miti Ruangkritya (b.1981, Bangkok, Thailand) is a visual artist whose photography practice expands into the realms of video, text, and publishing to express his ruminations centred on the notion of the City. His prolific body of work, catalysed by his return to Thailand in 2010 following over a decade of education in England, chronicles personal responses to his everyday observations while articulating with sensitivity the urban urgencies of contemporary living. Spanning political upheaval, ecological change, dislocation, and economic inequalities, the range of topics explored across his oeuvre is further characterised by his extended and in-depth engagement with them, as evidenced by his varied and longstanding series of works such as Thai Politics (2006-ongoing), DREAM PROPERTY (2014-ongoing), and Sunset (2018-ongoing).

A graduate of the University of Westminster, MA Documentary Photography, Miti employs a range of techniques in elucidating the subject matter in question - extending beyond traditional digital and film photography techniques to incorporate found footage, and the appropriation and curation of social media postings, advertising slogans, and news media in his artmaking process. In doing so, his works also shed light on the nature of image generation, presentation, and consumption in a world increasingly defined by the visual experience.

Miti was the recipient of the Open Call Winning Portfolio at the Singapore International Photo Festival (2021), Finalist for the Sovereign Art Prize (2016), and shortlisted for the Kassel Book Award (2015). In addition to solo artist presentations in Australia, Bangkok, Singapore, and Venice, his works have been featured in numerous exhibitions and festivals domestically and internationally, including: The Noorderlicht Photography Festival (NL, 2012), FORMAT International Photography Festival (GB, 2015), as well as the Singapore Art Museum travelling exhibition After Utopia (AU, JP, 2017). In 2017, Miti was also part of The Backers Foundation and AIT Residence Programme. His practice is represented in the institutional collections of the Singapore Art Museum (SG) and MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum (TH), while his publications also reside in the libraries of the Tate (GB), Metropolitan Museum of Art (US), the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (ES), as well as many others.

He lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand.
