We’re beginning to lose count of all the talent in Thailand.  Artists, musicians, designers – the Land of Smiles is brimming with skilled creative-minded individuals.

Numerous artists have turned to social media platforms, especially Instagram, to share their artwork. Whether you’re an art connoisseur, or you’re in search of some creative inspiration, or you’re looking to endorse local artists, Instagram has become somewhat a treasure trove of artistry. While these Thai artists create beautiful works of art, we’re here to show some love. Case in point, for this article, we’ve curated a list of nine talented Thai female artists to follow on Instagram.

Pamda Bure

Known for her international fashion works and her experience in foreign countries, Pamda Bure’s work involves limited edition illustrations that are intended to feel inclusive. The multi-talented personality loves to draw inspiration from many facets of culture, and enjoys using clean lines and colours in her work. The peripatetic Bangkok-based illustrator continues to inspire us with her thought-provoking artworks that are bold and adventurous, just like personality. If you fancy reading the language of art, then Pamda’s Instagram is a treat for your soul.

Phaan a.k.a. Juli Baker and Summer

Chanaradee Chatrakul Na Ayudhya also known as “Phaan” is a young artist making and breaking her way through the industry with her vibrant charm. Given that she is a cinema-geek, she felt the name “Juli Baker and Summer” perfectly matched her arts and craft label and her playful vibe. Phaan’s child-like sense of wonder and quirkiness is reflected in her artwork, which is strikingly colourful and vibrant, and also portrays the little things to appreciate in life. Phaan got her big break when she was commissioned to design the cover art for local indie band “Stay at Home”, and since then there’s been no stopping. After all, the sky’s the limit. Follow Phaan on Instagram to sprinkle your day breaks with a splurge of summery hues.

Jeep Kongdechakul

An avid illustrator and designer, Jeep Kongdechakul is a fashionable artist who flaunts her charismatic style through printmaking, illustration, and fabric design. She has a knack for pop culture elements that can often be seen in her artworks. Meticulously crafted with tiny scribbled notes, Jeep’s sketches and patterns solidify everything that she captures in whimsical colours. We recently saw her exhibition at the Haus of Everything during Bangkok Design Week 2020 and can’t wait for more gigs. If you’re all about bold illustrations and adore one-of-a-kind designs, get a daily dose of her feed by following her on Instagram.

Pang Torsuwan

An extremely chic and elegant Bangkok-based artist, Pang Torsuwan is lover of surrealist art, devoted to curating print designs and a proud owner of a fashion accessories brand. Pang’s art oozes femininity and fashion inspired by women’s stories. Eexotically beautiful, Pang’s work speaks of self-love, empowerment, and acceptance. We saw her exhibition ‘HER LOVE’ displaying the phenomenon of love through “HERspective,” and it was truly empowering. Pang’s Instagram feed is an expression of self-care and a source of enlightenment in many ways.

I.peach.you.a.lot

I.peach.you.a.lot’s Instagram takes us down an artful journey of iconic movies and old-school fashion with a creative take on pop culture. Sometimes cheeky and sometimes comical, her artwork involves diverse illustrations that keep you hanging for more. Scroll down her Instagram feed to see your favourite characters, and afterward, you might want to go on an all-time favourite female-dominated movie marathon.

Min Supitcha

A young, talented, up-and-coming artist, Min Supitcha is all about exploring her creative side. From pop culture-inspired artworks to surrealism to comics, she is all for saying yes and traversing different styles of art. Min also designs tattoo art, so the next time you want to get inked, make sure to check her out. If you want to see her work in person, head over to Sarnies’ Japanese-inspired cafe extension. The oriental, polychromatic mural is the product of her and Luke Satoru’s work, and draws inspiration from traditional Japanese woodblock prints and kimonos. 

Jirayu Koo

The seventh artist we want to bring attention to is Thai artist and illustrator Jirayu Koo. You may have seen her work in Apple, Uniqlo, Nike, The New York Times, and/or The Guardian. Jirayu’s aptitude has landed her commissions from several global clients, all of which exhibit her trademark charm. Her creative practice can be described as exuberant, and is centred around voluptuous characters plus bold and vivid shapes. She’s passionate about developing characters and imagery that celebrate the quotidian and works in a range of media creations including paintings, screenprints, murals, and digital doodles. 

Irin Ariyatanaporn 

Irin ‘Ann’ Ariyatanaporn is the next Thai female artist on our list. This Chiang Mai-based architect and doodler leans towards minimalism. Her art is crisp, minimal, and intricate. Each creation tells a story and pays very close attention to detail, resulting in endearing and elegant doodles. The artist has created artworks for numerous local brands including eateries, fashion brands, and more in Chiang Mai and beyond.  

Phannapast Taychamaythakool

This artist loves adding a personal touch to her art. She shares her individualised anecdotes through her drawings of animal characters and flowers, and she does it beautifully. Bright, bold, and beautiful, she takes inspiration from her surroundings and her experiences, especially the love she has for her culture. Case in point, her upbringing in a Thai-Chinese family has majorly contributed to her creative practice, as exhibited in her oriental compositions. When you look at her work – really look at it – you’ll see that Phannapast Taychamaythakool‘s art always comprises an element of her personal life.
