Thai artist Jirapat Tatsanasomboon broke political barriers with his emergence of a specialized theme within his artwork. Although contemporary art throughout Asia still lacks scholarly research and global recognition, Tatsanasomboon became a chief leader when bringing attention to the massive influences the Western world has made on the rich culture of Thailand, as well as the pressures the people of Thailand faced by the influence of Westernized consumerism. His paintings includes the recreation of some of the world's most acclaimed artworks including creations by Michelangelo Buonarroti and Frida Kahlo. This paper will outline Tatsanasomboon’s disappointment towards the Westernized world and its negative influence on Thai culture through paintings that merge Thailand's epic characters from the Hindu story the Ramakien and the recreations of famous artworks as well as the comparison of his artwork to the originals he modernized.
