“Artist Thanakon from Chiang Mai paints his local surroundings – both scenes from nature and the local Buddhist culture. In Bodhi he uses simple layers in acrylic to capture the unique essence of a monk collecting alms. This serene and spiritual painting draws attention to its simplicity.
He often uses a combination of the knife palette and brush, working with bright colors and texture against a white background. He does this to gain additional control over the mood in a scenery. “
