BKK Unzine Issue 24 - Loss

Thank you so much for coming to our first group exhibition! (Noticing the puzzled expression on your faces)

What? You are in Bangkok and you haven’t seen the most popular exhibition in Bangkok, about the most popular topic on the Internet: CATS?

Don’t worry our exhibition “Loving CATS” at P.Space (in Old town Bangkok) is still open to public until 23rd April 2023. Please go see it and don’t forget to donate we have a donation box there for Catsanova a cafe where you can play with cats and you can adopt them if you want.   And now onto a theme that we often forget that we are part of NATURE.  

We thank you for the support. 

Thank you as always and Enjoy.

This a small poem about a couple who decided to live in the forest. Away from the chaos of civilization. Close to nature


Paradise City

Piya - Thorns of Grief

Mixed media: Photo edited in Photoshop and After effect
This artwork aims to explore the concept of power, following Deleuze and Guattari’s ideas as I describe in my Instagram post “Deleuze and Guatarri refer to the rhizome as being an “anti-geneology” “. The name of this piece, “Paradise City”, was inspired by the Guns N’ Roses song of the same name. In fact, all of my artworks are named after songs. “Paradise City” is a parody of something that many people in Thailand believe is divine. My art turns this paradise upside down try to question about it with the blood of worker? or people?

The Last Unicorn’s Farewell

Piya - Thorns of Grief

Digital art, 1080x1350px, 300 DPI, Procreate on iPad pro
The last unicorn in the world is bidding farewell to a group of children who have been her friends and protectors. The children have grown attached to the unicorn and have tried their best to keep her safe from hunters and other dangers.

However, the unicorn has grown weak and can no longer survive in the human world. She must return to her home in the forest, leaving the children behind. This artwork represents the last of natural resources. The children represents the innocence and purity of youth, while the unicorn represents a connection to nature and the unknown. The act of saying goodbye represents the pain of letting go of something that is precious and irreplaceable.


Mother Nature

Acrylic on canvas
Nature is something i ran into like a baby when i get bored of the external world, its funny how nature can relate with all of us internally like mother and child. Nature and us have a natural bond. It is a relationship that is deep, eternal and mesmerizing.

This is my tribute to the subject “Nature”. It’s called “Existence”. We can’t survive without nature but yet we do so much harm to it. This piece shows that we as humans are rooted to the soil that we walk on. We can’t exist and breathe without a healthy environment. Our existence depends on the sun, the rain, the water, the soil, the trees, the wild animal life, but yet we still burn down the forests and destroy the balance of nature.


Memories of Nepal – best Nature and men

Piya - Thorns of Grief

Shot with : Sony A6300 + Kit lens
Edited on : Adobe Lightroom

For this one I had to go and dig a bit deeper into my memories and archives of my photos and found out Nepal is probably the closest i have been to nature, not just because its natural. But because I was fully open to connect with it.

Nature is everywhere around us regardless of how developed we made our lives to be with all man made things… But guess what, we are as much part of nature and everything we do is as natural as a goat pooping or a volcano erupting.

It is interesting that we try to separate ourselves from it and think we need to save nature because or as if we are entitled to nature’s provision. I hope we all feel the nature in us, as much we feel the nature around us.

Feeling instantly positive and cheerful when cycling the few hundred meter into my narrow Soi. A state lightness and optimism which last the whole day. Rays of warm sunshine between the plentiful green left and right. NATURE in the middle of Bangkok.
