My name is Akin Kanjanapokin. For more than a decade, I create artworks under the name "Teeprang" which means Malerisch / Painterliness.
In creating artwork, I put myself into it. Basically what inspires me is what happens in my life or what I experience and perceive through culture, media, surroundings, including religions, belief, metaphysics, amulets, etc., For example, recently I questioned myself what is Thainess and interpreted it into artworks with no limitations to my imagination because the root of the term "Thai" refers to "Freedom".
For some of my recent work “Memorial Outcast" at BKKDW 2021, I would like to express the current state in which people having an excess of their living necessities, especially for clothing and technology.
Furthermore, I also work on commercial art which allows me to work with customers such as Honda, Leica Cafe, VIZA, Nylon TH - Marie Claire TH - More Media, etc. As well as the founder of Design studio under the name of “Teeprang Studio".
