In his own words, Chakrabhand Posayakrit, the celebrated portraitist
and painter whose themes are mainly taken from old Thai
dance-theatre and literature, gives us a profound understanding of
his artistic creations that are of fascinating beauty.
His abiding love and passion for traditional Thai arts have led to
the creation of other art forms through the precise nature of his
skill, expertise, imagination and his finesse.
The amazing artistic collection of his own creations includes Thai
puppets, theatrical costumes and headdresses, elaborately decorated
figurines known as palace dolls, small fully clad dolls representing
classical dancers in graceful postures, dioramas of scenes from Thai
literature with ten-inch tall figures, silk fans adorned with
traditional art and other inventive artistic creations, such as set
pieces, trinkets and scenery for his puppet theatre, exquisite
paraphernalia for the dioramas of scenes from Thai literature, all
of which are of fascinating beauty.
Every single piece of work is testament to his prominence as a Thai
maestro who has perpetuated the Thai artistic heritage. He calls
himself a Ďpainterí with modesty and never uses the vainglorious
term Ďartistí when referring to himself, yet his multifarious
creations speak volumes as to their priceless and precious
contribution to national pride in a way that is incomparable and
unmatched by his contemporaries.
