Therdkiat Wangwatcharakul



This series of work brings something

that vanished from the artist’s life to be back again …


When humans grow into adults,

we often lose some important things.

Something that creates pure energy for life

which we call “innocence”



The artist, Therdkiat Wangwatcharakul

also forsake that innocence

at somewhere… so far away…

until forgotten …


But actually, the innocence has never been lost. The artist gradually found it again by chance. Started from playing with his little son by dripping balls into paint colours,

It allowed artists to discover a new creative technique. Subsequently, he created the artworks in visual forms of various animal species with the inspiration that every time he paints animals

“He is happy”

At the 50 years of age, his life as an artist is memorable because both of his career path and award-winning have made his life and works to be honoured and recorded in the art history of Thailand as well as collected by numerous Thai and international collectors.


The series of work showing at “One’s World Mate” has been created during the artist’s vital period of life.


It is a reward of life in which he has shown freedom as well as have recorded the role of father.  Also, it is to express the friendship to the world.


Finally, it means that he has found the power of life again
