Jittagarn Kaewtinkoy was born in 1979 and completed his Bachelor of Fine Art at the Rajamangala Institute in 2001. Jittagarn has produced a series of portraits and paintings of well known politicians and of iconic personalities with the intent to explore their sense of commitment towards freedom and justice.
He often executes his paintings in a cartoon like manner with bright colors and a fair share of irony. It turns out that they often fall into two categories – good and bad. As a person committed to freedom, justice and transparency himself, the artist questions his subjects’ intentions and aspirations and whether they are sincere or exploit their positions as leaders and role models.
