About Nichapha Trongsiri

INTRODUCING THE ARTIST

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

Nichapha’s 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 womens’ solidarity, are offset by swathes of bold colour to show inner strength and beauty.



Her 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 womens’ solidarity, are offset by swathes of bold colour to show inner strength and beauty.

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

She draws inspiration for her artwork by tapping into women’s positive and creative energy. Her artwork symbolises women and femininity and gives women the power to embrace their bodies fully. She hopes that her artwork can encourage women to tap into their inner strength.

Finally, she named all of her 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. She 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. She wants to inspire a feeling of happiness and sunshine.
