How can I portray my perspective as a younger generation who seek to reform the current system of Thai government? In my works, I allude to the political unrest in my country, which I interpret from the point of view of the new generation. The political strife is gradually influencing part of my life as I comprehend the truth behind it. Tensions, obsessions, and depressions are shown in my works to indicate the experience that the younger generations have to go through in order to be able to speak up for themselves and for the whole society.
 
My investigation begins by focusing on the core of all the issues and unrest events. Each piece illustrates inequality, agony, and violence that the new generation have to face as they are trying to redefine their Thai's identity by getting rid of the reliance on monarchism and authoritarianism. I created different compositions and complimentary colors (3,8,10,15) as well as experimented with different symbols, body figures, and body expressions to reflect the emotion of the piece(3,5,9,10,15). The difference in mediums indicate my interpretation of what the new gen is facing and becoming.
