    The art of poking fun

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 01/06/2018

    » Tanawat "Pop" Prakammanu, 26, works as a graphic designer at an advertising agency in Bangkok and runs his Facebook page Prakammanu (fb.com/Prakammanu), where he showcases his drawings in his spare time. He went viral after publishing an action-filled Avengers-inspired comic with a cast full of figures in Thai politics from PM Prayut Chan-o-cha to student activist Netiwit Chotiphatphaisal. Pop poked fun at them with sharp humour (even though he insists he's a casual observer) and witty dialogues. His latest effort has been shared more than 100,000 times. His page isn't the first to poke fun at Thai politics but we think it's definitely worth checking out especially if you want to see Uncle Tu having a fist-fight with Thaksin Shinawatra. We talked to Pop about his serious art of poking fun but at, his request, no serious political comment.

    Contemporary mission

    Life, Published on 10/04/2018

    » A few months prior to its 10th anniversary, the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) made a major announcement: a new director. As of March 1, Pawit Mahasarinand has taken the helm of the city's main art venue and the largest public-funded art centre in the country, a surprising choice to many, though an entirely welcoming one.

    Politics? What politics?

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 28/09/2017

    » Jaa Pantachat's revival of her 2015 experimental comedic whodunnit Ceci N'est Pas La Politique (This Is Not Politics) may have maintained its original structure and storyline, but in this trimmed and funnier version, it has gained both clarity and poignancy.

    Vatican thriller

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 25/08/2017

    » Christianity hasn't been around long, its two millennia shorter than Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism. The God-Mary match captured the public's imagination and Holy Mother Church has been matched with God ever since. It survived its encounters with the Saracens and the Reformation, and now has an estimated following of 1 billion.
