This wall was painted for Bukruk Urban Arts festival in Bangkok. My aim was to combine my art with Thai tradition, so first thing I did when I arrived there was to take a walk in the city in search of inspiration for my mural.
One of the things that you immediately realize when you walk in the “City of Angels” is the adoration of the gold.
So, I decided to use that color and paint something from their culture, but with my own personal style.
The theme I ended up was Sovann Macha, Hindu’s belief mermaid that also appears in Thai version of Ramayana. Her name translates as the “Golden Mermaid” and images of her could be found all around Thailand, from tourist items to posters out of little shops for good luck.
