What materials do you use in your work and what are the designed
The nature of the work that I convey is nature painting. Sunshine sky,
mountains, trees, puddles, streams and mist. I paint using acrylic
techniques. Why do I paint like this? Because every time I draw a picture
like this it makes me feel like I'm traveling. Drifting away with my
imagination, reliving the atmosphere I've come from. It's the same house
that I lived in when I was a child. An atmosphere that gives more feelings
than words and descriptions, cool, fresh, complete, full, joyful, bright,
warm, many feelings. Received from nature reminds me of home. So I
recorded nature from imagination without using a model. It is in memories
and feelings. Just close your eyes and think. What kind of nature do we
want nature to be? That image then arises in the mind and imagination
freely. It is fun and enjoyable. It is as if we are the great creators of nature
in our imagination and our thoughts and feelings. I am fascinated every
time I put my brush to the canvas. It was like it had drawn me into the
atmosphere I wanted it to be without considering the prototype from the
photograph. Don't have to consider right or wrong. The matter of light,
shadow and various objects that will be written down follow the laws of
nature. which is in memory and it's all my imagination. I created an image
in my imagination and I saw it clearly inside.
Even though the picture I draw is nature, the sky, ordinary mountains, but
before drawing, I determine the feeling by sitting and dreaming about the
thing. Simply put, it is the imagination of the picture first. What do we
want it to be like? Do you want the picture to come out warm or cool,
bright, and floating?
Softly or do you want to feel the grandeur and wideness? Something like
this while drawing. The images that appeared and the feelings inside were
constantly in conversation with each other. Did you get it or not? Where do
you still need to increase or decrease? Do you feel the way we want you to
feel? Do you feel it yet? This thing works inside. together with drawing
outside. There will be a visual check at all times which when finished
drawing the work itself will express my feelings to the viewer without my
having to explain any messages.
Most works of this latter period are about the direction of the Feng Shui
view. A master has seen the work and has applied it to improving Feng
Shui, which affects the feelings of those who see it. The more you see it, the
more you feel it, and it will affect those who live in that place. It has an
effect on the emotions and feelings of the residents in the atmosphere in
which this image exists. This will affect how you live and work. Feng Shui is
another interesting science. And there are many things connected to the
principle of creating amazing art, such as the principle of balance.
principles of composition, aesthetics, and psychology, etc.
The Feng Shui nature landscape image has both aesthetic depth and
meaning, such as
- Sky means wide vision, seeing goals clearly, bright, clear, and comfortable
- A distant mountain in the back means that family members, children and
relatives take care of each other behind the scenes.
- The large central mountain represents ourselves, ancestors, and elders. It
is the base of prestige, stability, and perfection.
- The mountain on the side means royal couples, relationships, friendship,
husbands and wives, close friends, supporting each other side by side.
- The mountains and trees in the foreground mean the family and friends,
subordinates, and friends who help, protect, and take care of in front of us.
- Wide fields and fields mean showing a broad mind, kindness, generosity,
smoothness, peace, tranquillity, and comprehensiveness.
- Flowers mean value, friendship, love, happiness, outstanding, charming,
- Mist and clouds mean water. Water is wealth. It gives a feeling of
moisture and coolness. Give softness, lightness, freedom.
In working, there will be obstacles. It's normal. Every time when
encountering a problem it makes it fun and challenging for me. It makes
me think and consider. In search of solutions I always think about how to
reach my goals. Let the work come out well. Make it easy and fast. Over the
course of working for a period of time, I have accumulated various
techniques and methods in acrylic painting, including methods to solve
various problems with the many limitations of acrylic paint. Having been a
teacher before, I think of students who are interested in the same subject
and think of techniques and methods that we have found and fixed. It
should be useful to those who are interested. Therefore, I wanted to pass
on knowledge to people for use and further development. But there are
many personal conditions.
I don't want to be a full-time teacher. Teaching in an institution is limited
by time and place.
I don't want to be subject to the curriculum and teaching conditions that
others have thought of and framed for me to follow.
I want freedom in broadcasting Date/Time/Location. You can stop
whenever you want to stop. You can do it whenever you want.
I want the concepts, knowledge, and techniques to be recorded so that they
can be studied over and over again. No need to teach again every time.
I thought about it for a while. Therefore, I see channels for communicating
knowledge. Through websites, the internet, and social media So I started
putting video clips on YouTube, Facebook, and on Google. I didn't expect
that there would be so many admirers that I would become famous. I only
want to record my ideas, techniques, and knowledge for future generations
to use as basic information for further development in the future.
There is still a lot to learn. Including the present, there are many fun things
to learn and follow, such as ChatGPT, Ai, NFT, and the virtual world
Metaverse. The future of the art world cannot escape being related to these
things. In my eyes these are the most interesting and exciting.
Tell us about the details of being a painting teacher, doing You Tube,
organizing exhibitions and traveling to see work.
Talk about the future: art creation, drawing, exhibitions, presenting
work for people to see. It has developed and changed a lot. For example, in
the past, holding an exhibition was very difficult. In addition to having
good work and having accumulated enough work, there must be a place.
There must be an exhibition organizer. It requires a lot of money or if the
artist has the ability, they can organize it themselves, which is not easy at
If the goal is to bring our work to others to see and admire, in this era, just
post via mobile phone to the media. various social media. My work has
been displayed for people to see and admire. Those who see this
opportunity can use it to their advantage. You will not have to waste time
like in the past. Styles and methods have changed. But the goal still
remains the same. Knowing who did what, where and how is the work? Or
it might be better if we know how to use it. To be beneficial according to
I am one person that benefits from evolution, the development of today's
social media world. Many of the exhibitions were not convenient for me to
attend. Artist friends have organized in various.
About eating and drinking. I have restrictions on what I eat. I am a
vegetarian and have not eaten meat all my life. I don't drink alcohol, don't
smoke, and every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I spent time with my
family and went to study and practice Dhamma to gain understanding,
truth of life
Therefore, exhibitions or shows of my own work on social media, in media,
websites and the internet, channels that allow people to see my work
continuously. I consider it my exhibition through the online world. Anyone
who wants to watch any episode can come and watch, no time limit, no
limit on location. and can still talk to each other It's what suits me the most
right now, but in the future things can always change. It is considered to be
a great answer in today's society.
What is your defining view?
Finally, what I want to say is drawing is just one part of my search for
truth. True art for me is life. True life is the mind and feelings. Creating
balance in life is the principle of art. Too much or too little is a lack of
balance. Emotions and feelings that are balanced are calm, not angry, not
uncomfortable, not irritated, not bored, not sad, not worried, not afraid,
not suffering, not wanting too much.
Nature creates balance on its own. Nature outside: earth, water, wind, fire,
air, trees, grass, darkness and light. In fact, it is teaching and reflecting our
own inner balance. Anything that is heavy will fall. Anything that is light
will float upward. Like raindrops falling down. Like steam and smog
waiting to rise in the sky. It is nature and nature is the understanding of
life. And what reflects our understanding of life is how we live. It is seeing
the truth of life, both physical and mental. This is not a religion and this is
not a belief. But it is the truth of everything. that cannot be denied and this
is art for me.
