Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Sasita Samarnpharb

Visual Artist / Freelance Illustrator

Bangkok, Thailand
I'm a graduate of Visual Arts. I developed an interest in symbolism and mysticism in my BA degree and I decided to continue researching and creating work based on this symbolic interpretation in my MA studies. My work is highly conceptual. Signs and symbols are employed to guide a narrative in my illustration, but a complete explanation of the work is never revealed - it is up to the viewer to interpret it for themselves.

I specialise in traditional skills, especially graphite drawing, watercolour, and acrylic painting. I also have an understanding of digital processes which I sometimes combine with my traditional work in order to create pieces with a different perspective.
