Updates and news Aracha Cholitgul

Aracha Cholitgul 


Aracha Cholitgul (b.1988) lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand. She has been writing, drawing, painting, and telling stories relating to obscure feelings with different mediums. Cholitgul has high myopia since she was young (her mother took her to see an eye doctor because she always walked into things.) Thus, the idea of blurriness and uncertainty interests her. In her works, Cholitgul explores human emotions through personal stories. She likes to analyze the process of thoughts and the possibilities of what can happen in the mental sphere. Cholitgul also likes to touch things by hand, and her works always leave a trace of physical touch or some sense of intimacy. (She has the habit of touching other people's artworks, but she is working on that.) Cholitgul likes to write in a simple language, maybe because her range of vocabulary is quite limited.
