Meet artist and actress from Bangkok, Pahn Riety.

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Pahn Riety, I’m an artist and actress, also starting to make some content on Youtube. I started working at a very young age. After that, I’ve always been working in the illustration field and have collaborated with Disney, Pandora, Shiseido, Unicef, Greenpeace etc. After years of commercial work I dived into fine art and had a solo exhibition called ‘VEIN/VAIN’ in which I drew 16 models by their own blood then sent it to the lab to analyze what kind of health condition they were in. The main idea is I wanted to represent women’s beauty from inside and outside, literally. By bringing what’s inside them: blood, and expose it to the outside world to admire ‘beauty of their portraits’ then look back to their inside analysis of their blood content. I’m also doing some modeling gigs and landed a role in movies and series, just for fun haha. I’m also into politics, history, science, and philosophy. Basically, I just get bored easily and I like challenges.

 

Describe the city you’re living in and what it’s like to live there.

It could be better, especially on infrastructure. It’s not easy to commute and the political climate is concerning. Bangkok is like another country in a country, there is a huge ugly gap in the economy. I’m not raised to fit in the culture so I would prefer elsewhere.

What is the best and worst thing about living in your city?

Best is food, worst is everything else haha

 

Give us 3 words that describe what it’s like to be a creative in your city.

GET ME OUTTTTTTTT

 

How did you start your career in art?

I wanted to work in the art field seriously around when I was 11-13 years old. At that time, I sold some of my art, it didn’t make much but at 16 I start working as a part-time Manga artist assistant and wrote some of my own too. By 19 I started my own FB fan page and, luckily, got a lot of illustration jobs since then.

Were the people around you supportive of your decision on working as a creative?

They were, they also have no say in what I wanted to do. 

 

What are some goals and ambitions you have for your future work?

I wanted to explore more in ArtxScience. Also, I would love to try to integrate foreign things that are not considered ‘art’ or using art to communicate/represent something that never tells a story via art before. For me, art is just a tool, a way to tell a story or to accomplish a certain communication goal. So it has to be versatile and compromising, therefore, I’m trying to find a way to do that.

How would you describe the women around you?
They are unique in their own way.

 

Were there any local female creatives that you looked up to when you were growing up?

None, I did not care much about the creative industry in Thailand when I was younger. 

 

Are there any challenging aspects of being a female in your industry?
Not that I’m aware of.

 

Work hard, harder, and smarter than anyone you know. Be vigilant and versatile.

Do you have any advice to young women who are aspiring to work in your field?

Work hard, harder, and smarter than anyone you know. Be vigilant and versatile.
