Top hat & tails gang

Ta • Thailand

2018 • Oil on canvas

200 x 150 cm

In all my work there is a part of me I don’t mean just the painting but the characters If it’s a Goddess I dream of the beauty and the way she portrays herself full of confidence and spirit. My cartoons I like to have my character in there one who is always looking super cool and dressed to kill. For the conspirators I like the toughness I like a bully in there (there is always a bully somewhere) and the boss then all the hangers on the people who do the bosses bidding. In this one, it looks like two gangs which may turn into a bit of conflict but the one boss is outnumbered and whats to hold the others back, many onlookers are trying desperately to keep out of the way but don’t want to miss any action. I want my people to have a bit of character, a little of the night about them I want them to be unique.

About Ta

At 12 I worked in the rice fields, 13 worked in a sweat factory in Bangkok making shirts, 14 was driving a pick up truck 7 days a week 14 hours a day selling vegetables which I did until my early twenties.

While working in Bangkok I went for a walk I didn't get far, came across an old art studio with an old man painting I stood and watched him for ages, he invited me in, showed me what he was doing and showed me round his studio.

I knew I wanted to be like that old man and paint, I loved that old studio,  loved the chaos the smell of paint, it was fascinating and I was well and truly hooked. I didn't know how I was going to do it but knew one day I was going to be an artist.

Later in life I was given an opportunity. Art, I grabbed it with both hands it changed my life and will continue to do so.
