The Paris-based artist has showcased his talent on canvases and other items like a bike (a design in collaboration with BMW and showcased at the exhibition) and even Cardi B's handbags. He's chosen Bangkok to be his first foray into Asia so Guru sat down and talked with him about his art and what drew him to Bangkok.

    » Born and raised in Bangkok before studying in the UK and Australia, Oranan Tangpanitanon is the owner of The Hidden Closet, Bangkok's first erotic boutique, on Thong Lor 6.

    Abs, empathy and edge

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 02/12/2016

    » One hour with Chakrit Narula, a personal trainer at The Edge Boutique Gym (http://fb.com//theedgeboutiquegym) and you feel like you've done your bit for the year. Despite his military approach to working out, what we like about Chakrit is his ability to relate with us normal humans who don't work out - or plan to - 24/7. We aren't robots and we're very much driven by realness and that "yeah I'll get round to it" mentality. We stumble. We fall. We fail. Chakrit's seen about every colour of the human condition when it comes to physical fitness, and this translates in his ability to motivate us. He wasn't always all abs and bones you know. Here's his story.
