I am a self-taught artist (mainly producing acrylic pop-surreal portraits) born and raised in Thailand currently traveling the world with my university program, Minerva Schools at KGI which brings me to 7 different countries in my 4 university years.
I was in Seoul just last year and got the opportunity to collaborate with the organization ArtUp and the Seoul Creator's Meetup Collective for art exhibitions wherein I created paintings and sculptures inspired by my time in Seoul, touching on the topics of North Korean refugee and South Korea's female identity and the body with my portraits.
Currently, I am working on a series of paintings called the Anatomy of a Daydreamer which is a series of self-portrait on round canvases as an exercise in cultivating a unique stylistic voice as an early-career artist.
Additionally, I am also working on a series of paintings depicting different people's definition of masculinity and femininity, of which I am currently in the process of interviewing.
I wanted to explore how the meaning of these two words differ from one person to another and what is coded into our collective global culture when it comes to gender.
I am inspired by works of Yoskay Yamamoto and Shanna Van Maurik, both of whom employ a unique memorable palette and motifs that play with the imagination. With my art, I like exploring the themes of imagination, vulnerability through the human form conveyed through a pop-surrealism art style.
