What is the Heart of an Artist?
Lifestyledezine is asking this very question with the Positivity Scrolls.
WHAT IS THE HEART OF THE ARTIST?
The “Positivity Scrolls” ask this very question. Looking inside the heart of Pairoj Pichetmetakul, a Thai monk turned street artist as he paints large scale portraits of the homeless and displaced. Much of this dialogue is recorded as written text alongside each portrait, which are kept as a continuous large scroll of heavy-grade paper, creating a long form illustrated journal. We seek to know art better, and know our hearts better; is it resolving anything for him or for the world around him? We seek compassion, we seek to highlight the unnoticed and overlooked with an intention to inspire others, raise esteem, change expectations & preconceptions, and reveal histories.
My artwork cannot change the world, but I hope to help uncover positivity within individuals on a small scale, by example, through the mechanisms of art and unwavering positive engagement. — Pairoj Pichetmetakul
