Paramat chose to be trained in classical Thai painting techniques as he wishes to preserve the country’s cultural heritage. He spent his earlier years doing mural paintings for many temples around the country. His time spent in temples got him to develop an interest in Buddhism. The meditative environment spurs him to reflect and think about the many stories and teachings of Buddha that he had painted on the walls of the various temples. It lays the foundation for his later works.
Paramat works are also inspired by nature, the presence of nature, the importance of nature. Hence many of his works feature plants and animals, real or mythical. His main objective is to highlight the importance of living with nature and not to go against it.
With such confluences of thoughts and influences, Paramat has developed a very unique style in his works. They are highly intricate and yet melodious, bold and yet serene. It is almost like a portrait of a paradisiacal world. A world conjured by the artist not for himself, for anyone who opens their mind to it.
