Around the clock means 24 hours a day, seven days a week. What is the longest mission you've ever completed? Ten days, four weeks, three months, or ten years? Have you done anything that required you to work around the clock? Pira Ogawa, a 75-year-old man, began his artistic path as a child. He began with freehand sketching and progressed to geometric shape style as a result of his passion for geometry at school. Pira's life had been altered when he was a teenager when his family moved him to Japan to study. Because of the language barrier and cultural differences, he became quite anxious and heard voices of insects in his ear. The voice disturbed and worried him, but Pira finally found inner calm by drawing and painting geometry in various shapes. Pira has been painting daily over the past 60 years with enjoyment and calm, despite the fact that he was not trained as an artist.

The Tail Stories (Siamese Fighting Fish)


Mon-Fri 11 AM-8 PM; Sat-Sun 10 AM-8 PM, Room 254, 2nd Fl River City Bangkok

The exhibition may also be viewed virtually at
https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=D2EfTpYgjm2.

Every story has multiple dimensions, such as the Siamese Fighting Fish, also known as Betta, a gorgeous, tiny fish with vibrantly colored and wavering tails. Although their appearances seem to be delicate and vulnerable, the Siamese Fighting Fish is an aquatic animal with a fighter mentality that has led to the "Fish-Fighting Game" for centuries. Furthermore, the income from their exports supports the Thai agricultural economy around thousands of millions of baht per year. In 2019, they were chosen as Thailand's national aquatic animal, alongside elephants. This photography exhibition immerses viewers into a multidimensional story of the Siamese Fighting Fish of which few people are aware. Patchara Aunsangchan is a photographer who has been fascinated by the colors and movements of Siamese Fighting Fish and has devoted years to capturing their actions and emotions through his lens. Patchara’s working approach is very unique. He has spent days and nights with the fish until they became acquainted with him and disclosed their true natures to him.

Our October in-studio art camp will reference Halloween customs: the creepy crawlies and the monsters that will ensure a freaky and fabulous spin to the art workshop. We have created a space for our young "creatives" to play with their ideas in a structured way, to have fun with materials, but also to learn a few key techniques in the process. They will be introduced to foundation skills in drawing, painting and craft based processes while being guided into building and structuring key ideas behind character, pattern-based, costume and architecture design.

For more information and reservations please visit https://www.facebook.com/ParonSchoolofArt or email hello@paronschool.art.
