  • Artist Statement:
    More than 60 years, Thailand's current monarch has reigned as the head of the state and revered by most Thais. His Majesty has accomplished significant developments for the nation, which has not only benefited all Thais, but also contributed incomparably to Thailand.

    Each time when His Majesty grants a grand public audience, thousands and thousands of people gather, in order to express their admiration and deep loyalty to His Majesty.

    In nowadays, our life has become more and more complicated and hustling. I intended to reverse the tendency by using an old and slow printmaking technique. During the process of doing the printing plate with a lot of people, faces, bodies, I think of the tired and diligent king who consistently brings better experiences to his people. I also think of the massive crowd who went greeting His Majesty; a crowd that starts from one person to millions of people.

    It has been saying that "A picture is worth a thousand words". However, in my work The Greatest Love, thousands of people are yelling out the same words, that is, "Long Live the King".
