Amidst an urban society, a population with the same idealistic dreams lie under the same set of rules and surroundings – they chase their desires in vulnerability, just like fishes who fight eachother vigourously for food thrown in the water. Thempracha tackles the concept of capitalism, outlining the different social classes present in modern society and discussing their persuasive role within the community. From the heavy control of the wealthy people to the hefty burden that falls upon the working class individuals – he poses a question on behalf of them: are we really working towards a better life? With this question, he invites you to observe the societal systems along with him – what kind of games are they playing?

Get to know the artist

In the past, Thampracha had always enjoyed drawing, mostly focused on his surroundings and its atmosphere. Throughout his observations and studies in architecture – Thai, Chinese and Japanese style of structure felt the most inspiring to him. This was due to its calm composition and cultural uniqueness that feels like an escape from reality. The artist paints and works through his progress with a calm mind. “When the mind is calm, I think of my actions towards others. With a good conscience, people around you will understand you a lot more,” Thampracha explains. 

The turning point for Thampracha is his journey to developing a healthier mindset. He feels as if working individually grants him more creative strength therefore peace is a required element during his work process. “I’ve reflected on many things upon my understanding with myself; this made me more understanding towards different situations that had happened. With the calm energy I gained, I realize that it works well with my career and daily activities,” The artist explains. Maintaining his peace and personal space brings the artist into his own space; where disruption is not welcomed and will not be caused.

His proudest work goes to the mural that he painted for a restaurant at Charoen Nakhon 29/2 alley because of his experience while creating the mural. He had the opportunity to socialize with the locals and learn their thoughts – this allowed him to better express these concepts onto the artwork, thus resulting in a mural that became a piece of admiration from everyone around the area. “At the time, I was quite pleased with the reaction I was getting from the work, which definitely encouraged me to keep developing my skills even further. It was a piece of work that fulfilled my heart,” Thampracha beams.
