Songrit Dokbua

Artist Story

“To me, Thai boxing is a sport of completion,” says Songrit. “Over centuries, the skills and wisdom are developed and handed down from one generation to the next. It is the art that preserves the Thai culture at its strength. This inspires me. I am impressed by elements that constitute this. Thai marital arts, traditional music, wisdom of movements, respect to one’s body and mind, adherence to senior’s preach, and belief in morals and discipline. The idea moves me and I felt charged with free spirit when working on these drawings.”
