"My work is to tell about our lifestyle through Thai art and literature. Much of our identity comes from the old days, and our art has a tradition of thousands of years.""My name is Poovadol Srikaew, and my nickname is 'Jib.' I was born September 9, 1975 to a family of five – my older sister, my younger brother, mother, father and me. I studied primary school and junior high near our hometown and for three years in a vocational school in the provincial capital. Then I went to Bangkok for a bachelor's degree because of my interest and love for art. Our hometown is a popular tourist destination, and foreign tourists are interested in Thai art. Also, my vocational school teachers are specialists in Thai art motifs. By the time I finished my BA, I'd know Thai art quite well.
"After graduating, I worked for a year in Bangkok, painting traditional motifs on Thai silk. I finished the required year as a soldier then went to help my uncle in his signboard and stationery shop for a year. I returned to Bangkok and took a job designing restaurant menus, but I was homesick all the time. So after six months, I went back home.
"All through my childhood, I went to the temple everyday to take food offerings and stayed a long time to copy the wall paintings. I only attended the festivals a few times because I don't like crowds. In this one life, I will do everything well today and better tomorrow.
"My work is to tell about our lifestyle through Thai art and literature. Much of our identity comes from the old days, and our art has a tradition of thousands of years. It has a lot of meaning for all Thai people and for me too. I'm grateful that Novica is a window for people in the whole world to see, know and love Thai art."

"All-Encompassing Loving-Kindness of the Buddha"
This is another beautiful work by the Thai artist, Poovadol. In a corner is the luminous figure of a meditating monk. Above him looms the the peaceful and sublime face of the Blessed One, situated in infinite space. Is the Buddha contemplating his own Enlightenment, or is he looking with approbation at the striving of another? Poovadol has very skillfully blended the yellow light emanating from the body of the meditator with the soft blue of the Buddhas face. It really must be seen to be believed! Thank you, Poovadol and Novica.

"Rare and precious beauty!"
I am an American Buddhist. Both my parents passed away 20 years ago. Of the Eight Great Events of the Buddhas life, the event depicted in the Heavenly Visit is the best representation of filial piety. The Buddha spent a rainy season teaching the Abhidharma to his (reborn) Mother and the other gods in the Heaven of the 33 Gods. The artist, Poovadol, has created one of the most beautiful representations of this event in the Blessed Ones life. The colors are well matched, the detail is almost unbelievable, and the composition is perfect. The art piece arrived very quickly after my order, and in perfect condition. I am so happy to have this beautiful piece of art. Anyone who wonders whether they should purchase a piece by Poovadol should wonder no more - Get it! You wont be disappointed! Thank you Poovadol and Novica.
