Nichapha Trongsiri is a Melbourne-based artist who works as a 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.
Nichapha 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.
