Tika war gerade im Rahmen des Bukruk Street Art Festival in Thailands Haupstadt Bangkok und hat eine neue, schöne Arbeit im Gepäck. Die Arbeit “Four Lorus Trees” befindet sich vor dem Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC) .

Wer gerade oder in nächster Zeit in Bangkok ist, sollte auf jeden Fall mal vorbeischauen (BTS-Station National Stadium) und in dem Zuge auch auch gleich einen Abstecher ins BACC machen.

TIKA says: Each column tells it’s own small story. together this work «FOUR LOTUS TREES» is a collgae of experiences I made, stories I’ve heard, temples and expositions I’ve visited, food I ate, everyday street-life I lived and thoughts I had during my six weeks stay in Thailand.

1 TIGER EATER: when a human kills a tiger and eats it, it takes in all its force and powers aswell all the powers the tiger has within it by all the humans it already ate before. So the light comes out of the tigers mouth.

2 FLOATING ISLANDS: the beauty of culture and nature dissolving and floating away by suffocation through careless tourism and burnt garbage.

3 PAYANAK MERMAID: the spirit of the water and rain, also called naga, a snakelike dragon with human torso, beliefed to be living in the Mekhong.

4 PHIKANET BOY: the elefant headed god of the art who brings fortune and luck. eating lotusflowers the wisdome shines out of the elefants forehead.
