About Nichapha


👋 The artist/ Meet Nichapha

My name is Nichapha Trongsiri. I am a Melbourne-based artist who works as an UI/UX designer when I am not painting. I have always had a creative flair which was harnessed during university whilst studying a degree in Fine Arts in Thailand. My Thai background continues to shape my joyful artistic style, as well as my mentor, George Haidar, especially in the use of palette knives, which has culminated into refined and elegant abstract impressionism.

My palette is vivid and bright to elicit happiness, and forms are fluid and serene to encapsulate the dynamic nature of life. Patches of delicate detail, such as the subtle pinks in the nudes that represent women's solidarity, are offset by swathes of bold colour to show inner strength and beauty.

I often include gold in my artwork, not only giving texture and light to her pieces which emanates effervescent optimism, but also adds a sense of glamour as my artist signature.

 

 

I draw inspiration for my artwork by tapping into women’s positive and creative energy. My artwork symbolises women and femininity and gives women the power to embrace their bodies fully. I hope that my artwork can encourage women to tap into their inner strength.

Finally, I named all of my artworks as untitled following with the number, are open to being named, and changed depending on the viewer mood, similar to the moods that carry women from one day to the next, and through monthly cycles. The abstract expressionism captures the form of a woman’s body in its utmost beauty, with brushstrokes giving fluidity to the work, in a similar way, that each and every woman is unique and follows the ebbs and flows. I use the flower shapes to symbolise that women have the ability to blossom in a conducive environment, and will emanate strength and hope when they are nurtured. Flowers are in so many colours they make people happy. I want to inspire a feeling of happiness and sunshine.
