Description

Get to know the Artist

Presamvorakitkool openly expresses his admiration of nature and his firm intention that his works would revolve around the vast subject matter. He aims to spread awareness on nature conservation and the consequences of ignorance regarding this topic. “If we push the problem away, it’ll only get bigger. I want people to see what could happen when we lose it eventually to our own greed. I want people to see why we should conserve it,” He explains his concept. 

The woodcut printworks of the artist accentuates every intricate detail of nature and its amazing, yet complicated features. From the small strands that hang from the leaves to the texture of the treebark – Presamvorakitkool highlights every corner with dignity to enhance the natural atmosphere and grab the attention of the viewers. Seeing this enables us to appreciate the wildness of the environment and how these distinct patterns can be effortlessly produced by the inevitable movement of the world. 

“With my personal problems at the time, I turned and opened my heart to religion, specifically Buddhism when I was at my lowest,” The artist recalls. Relating this topic to Buddhism creates a correlation between ideas and moral values. In buddhist religion, letting go and remaining calm is taught as one of the essential aspects to living a peaceful life. This is taught and practiced among many Buddhist followers, but according to the artist, it became more of a life practice more than religious input. “With these ideas in mind, I drew the connections between Buddhism and the environment; communicating how a simple life could lead to less disturbance to nature,” He describes. “Struggling with depression, I’ve always ignored anything non-science supported and refused to learn about religion. However, as I was left with no other option, there was no reason for me to not try and I’m glad I did,” The artist openly admits.
