What was the thinking behind your artwork?
I have presented Thai culture by using details of adornment and decoration in our style. Gold is a very holy colour in Thai culture, representing deep faith in Buddha and the king. It is a symbol of being both materially and spiritually rich.
If a friend had 24 hours to spend in your city, how should he/she spend them?
In the morning he should take some time to go to the Grand Palace (Wat-Phra-Keaw), Wat-Po and Wat-Arun. In the afternoon, he can go shopping at Siam Square and Jatujak Market. For dinner, he should go to Thong-Lor (Sukhumvit) or Soi Ari, where there are many nice restaurants. For nightlife, he can get some drinks at Khao-san Road, or some pubs at RCA.
