His “Indie Cartoon” collections are featured on his Facebook page, and have been shared widely, in Phuket, Thailand and even abroad. The Phuket Newsrecently caught up with Few to find out more about his unique style of contemporary pop art.

A lecturer at Petkasem Management Technological College in Bangkok who also earns supplementary income as a freelance graphic designer, Few reveals that his interest in art developed from a young age, while he was still in grade school.

“I found myself immersed in art. I started drawing cartoons for friends and to my surprise, they all liked it,” he says with a laugh.

“I studied at King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in Bangkok, which allowed me to explore my passion for art further.”

“My classmates seemed to like my work too, they even told me to draw more. I began to produce some unique stuff in my drawings, and then I knew I had found my style. I was happy. I adaptedmy art to different stories...”

And the origin of his name, “One day I was listening to a song called ‘Go With The Flow’ by Queens of the Stone Age, which inspired me a little. My work combines pop art with cartoons, a caricature if you will.

Moved by various movies, Few began to explore his thoughts, and convert them into art, gradually starting to add colour to his cartoons.

“There have been times where I’ve made mistakes in life, as many people have, but I made an effort to not give up. Especially when Thai society constantly makes a point that art is not an effective way to earn money.

“But I chose to do something that makes me happy. Having lots of money is not my priority, but that doesn’t mean that money is not important either.”

“In the future, I will still roll with The Flow, which is the name I use for my art. It can be used later on, say if I open another gallery and name it ‘The Flow Gallery’, or even open an art school called ‘The Flow Academy of Art’. Anything is possible”.His art portrays a hidden message within the working age and art society, but it is presented in simple colours so that it is easy for others to engage with the meaning.
