Thai people have been known for coming up with whimsical and fun works of art. Check out Propaganda products to get a better taste of what I mean. Consequently, these hand painted chairs by Ratinan Thaijareorn are no different. Using acrylic paints (and likely much patience), Ratinan was able to create the intricate details for the design of these library chairs which are currently being displayed inside an Adidas store in Siam center, Bangkok, Thailand.
The burst of colours and DIY design has definitely brought life to these otherwise bland chairs as you can see above. After speaking with Ratinan personally, I found out her designs were inspired by the packaging of her favourite candy which she frequently purchases (we will leave the name of the candy as a mystery). She also wanted to create a piece that screamed ‘CELEBRATION!‘. In total, it took her 3 months to complete the pieces; her sketches were simple to start, but became elaborate once her paint brush touched the chairs.
Ratinan also operates a clothing store in the Siam center in Bangkok called Weisschwarz which simply translated in English means ‘Black and White’. The line consists of accessories, clothing and everything else in between that is a reflection of her own personal style, mixing graphics with feminine prints.
At the age of 24, this girl has got talent! For the artists out there, have any of you created works of art out of bland looking furniture? Show us your stuff!
