01. The ultimate contradiction: war and peace
I hate war.
I, therefore, use a soft brush to create people's ultimate pursuit of peace.
Over the years, I have painted cold and precise guns, but I only let furry cute animals operate them.
Growing up in Thailand, I have been devoted to Buddha since I was a child. I have always maintained respect and compassion for all beings.
Although it might at first seem contradictory that I enjoy researching weapons, I appreciate the precision of science and technology, which can be used in more human-warming fields.
If war is unavoidable, I also hope to minimize the damage through my painting.
02. Inner contradiction: Wild and quiet
War and peace are not the only contradictions in life.
I am gentle and quiet on the surface, but waves are crashing inside.
Whenever the emotions need to be vented, I will silently stuff the cry of death metal music into my ears to feel a different kind of earth shaking.
I collapse and explode like a quantum star--but at the same time, a peaceful new universe is gestating.
After the hurricane passes, I will take a long hot bath.
Once the last droplet of water is drained from the tub, the "Slow Life Boy" next door completes his transformation .
