Description

The artist who conveys stories through spiritual symbols. Most of his works are based on religious beliefs and the puzzle of Dhamma, leaving an audience to think and find solutions by themselves. Based on the concept that real Thai art is not only the pattern called “Kanok” as we once understood, patterns in Thai art help us think, understand, and see appearances of what we want to convey clearly. According to this concept, the artist can create various forms of Buddhist art with a combination of the eastern and western styles. From a collection of 75 pieces of the work called “A Gathering of Divine Beings or Devas”, the background originates from experiences and feelings the artist has encountered. A combination of the abstract and the concrete is set as the brightly colored background full of patterns as a result of splashes of paint. Then, the divine beings are drawn on the background. According to the Thai idealistic belief, a person who does good deeds and feels afraid to commit sins. When he dies, he will be reborn as a divine being. The divine being’s appearance is not a perfect one. The artist wants to convey the beliefs all human beings have—the beliefs that can heal us sometimes. The divine being overlapping the abstract background is an overlap between stories happened in the artist’s real life and the ideal world, leaving the audience to discover these.
