Description

Mezzotint

Kraisak is a fully artist as he’s being professional in artwork creating for more than certain technique. Not only that he paints but his printmaking also vary from drypoint, mono print and mezzotint. For mezzotint, he prefers using this specific technique if the work requires depth, weight, as well as shade and light. Moreover, his mezzotint printmaking is outstanding amongst others with the same technique from showcasing human figures or portrait. Which from his experience and observations, not many Thai artists are personally using the mezzotint technique to produce portraits. “After the death of his majesty the King Rama IX, I still try to keep his presence alive with my artwork. Around 2–3 of my pieces are about his majesty, but they weren’t technically up to my standards so I eventually stopped,” He recounts. After this obstacle, he took a long break from art to take a step back and refresh his mind – not in a hurry to find further inspiration.

Kraisak Chirachaisakul : Artwork’s style and story 

Previously, His works were mainly portraits of renowned people, both historical and contemporary, especially King Rama the IX, Queen Sirikit, and Thai royal family. Each person on each art frame related to specific circumstances which Kraisak, even as an artist, prefers to respect that. Meaning, his creations aimed not to writing whole new fantasy or proposing other interpretation but to capture the memorable figure in each memorable moment on the paper using dedicative technique. Which focusing on the technical aspects of the art allowed him to be more professionally trained. Moreover, it has taught him patience and perseverance. Then his turning point had came another time as he struggled to find passion for his work and was confused as to what he wanted to do according to King Rama the IX’s passed away. Until 2018, he met Anastasia for the first time, he refers to it as “love at first sight”.  The artworks based on Anastasia were from different perspectives, using a variety of methods and techniques. “All I was interested in was drawing her because seeing her brought out countless interpretations”, stated the artist.
