     A fusion of east meets west, Tatsanasomboon, Jirapat takes from Thailand culture merging American’s golden age of pop imagery and comics. Mr. Tatsanasomboon received his master degree from Silpakorn University in 1999. He must have studied his technique of chose acrylic paints on canvas, there. Ranging in canvas size Mr. Tatsanasomboon slick recycled pop imagery still holds a graphic component. He in syncs two different worlds that really are not that different.


     Mr. Tatsansomboon main focus in subject matter  is that of the epic hero. Pop culture images like batman hold a time and place in the anthropology of American culture, just like the story of Ramakien holds the same for Thailand. However it may be questionable if batman holds the path to enlightenment, maybe for some people in American society. The story of Ramakien is derived from the Indian Ramayan epic. Batman himself is believed to be secondary to Zorro. Zorro arriving on the comic book scene in 1931 is the original masked playboy persona. Mr. Tatsanasomboon plays on the dualities of the epic story using earth tones colors with saturated reds. The American artists works that he copies to merge with his style are also monumental, in American Culture. Some of these artists Mr. Tatsansomboon replicates  are Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Roy Lichenstein.


     By reusing these past images created by other artist Mr. Tatsansomboon is doing the same as his past images of epic heroes. His work truly showcase the importances of other cultures and there connections. It also shows the importance of a global society, however we influence one another. Currently Mr. Tatsansomboon is represented by Thavibu Gallery in Thailand.
