Sometimes it's compared, for the sake of convenience, with Gothic-era will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern. But seriously, please, that is a gross under-characterisation that discounts the supreme grotesqueness of krasue, born by the pulpy fantasy of our equatorial folklorists.

    Life, Published on 18/10/2018

Today, his body of work -- under the exhibition name "Papillon" -- can be seen in Charoen Nakhon's The Jam Factory from now until Oct 28.
