Meet illustrator and graphic designer from Bangkok, Patsachon Toyingpaiboon.

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m Patsachon, an illustrator and graphic designer. I was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand all the way through my university years. I am currently in Berlin in order to pursue my dream as an art student for a Master Degree.

 

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

I’d say Bangkok is quite friendly, such an easy-going city to be honest. You can do whatever you want, street food all day and night, drink as much as you wish and everything you’d ask for. If Bangkok is a person he would be a guy who has such a big apartment with a door wide open. He would provide you food, drink, nice bed sheets, music, nightlife…etc. But his place is pretty messy, probably clean up twice a year.

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

The best thing would be how life can be convenient here. 7/11(the biggest mini-supermarket franchise in Thailand) can be found right next to your door and it’s open 24/7 with everything you need. The worst thing is the humidity, heat, and air pollution. I do not have any further words about this, but well… what a great combination.

 

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

Observant, Active, Gets bored easily (so you keep exploring something new)

 

How did you start your career in art?

I first started my art career in 2015 when I had a student internship with Giraffe Magazine in Bangkok. I also published my artworks and self projects on Instagram and have been developing my work since then.

 

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

Yes, all my friends, family and co-workers are always supporting me and they do respect my standing point. This means a lot to me actually, and I’m so lucky to have them in my life.

 

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

I would like to be more experimental with my artworks and explore some more techniques. I like how my works have been changing little by little like it’s gradually growing. And I still don’t know how it’s going to be in the future, will just wait and see.

If you could collaborate with any person in the world who would it be?

How would you describe the women around you?

Men and women are equal these days. It’s pretty obvious in this creative field I live in. Independent and self-esteem could be words to define the women around me. I can see how they represented themselves through their works with strong beliefs and full of passion in what they do. This is how I see the women around me, but there is a bit of a difference about the women AROUND me compared to the wider scope of the circle. I can see how fragile of a heart they have because of this thing called “relationships”.

 

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

Not really, maybe it’s because when I was growing up, I still do not know exactly what I wanted to be or do. So basically, I was a normal kid who enjoyed watching movies, pretty much. Movies could be the only thing that I looked up to, and you probably see how that shaped me through my works.

 

Are there any challenging aspects of being a female in your industry?

There are no challenges to being a female in this industry. For me, to make a satisfying piece of work is the big challenge. This is why I always have my own project -to keep questioning what I am doing right now and if this will please me like my previous works. The biggest challenge is that clients come to me with the same aspect as mine.

 

Practice makes things perfect most of the time, I know it’s cliche but it’s so true.

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

Keep doing what you are really into right now. Practice makes things perfect most of the time, I know it’s cliche but it’s so true. Be who you are and do what you love, please don’t let anyone change the real you. And one more important thing, satisfy yourself and not others.
