Like a fish in water
An acrylic painting of aquarium life written on canvas, it belongs to the brush of a remarkable Thai artist Krisanachai Sripila.
Image: Colorful red-black-and-white fishes play and blow bubbles joyfully in the water surrounded by nothing than green weed, grey pebbles and the pitch blackness of the lake bottom.
What image has the painter tried to convey?
Maybe he meant that while we feel ourselves comfortable with our daily routine, just “like a fish in water”, it might turn out that what we see every single day is actually the dark bottom of life with the same bunch of faces of fellow bottom residents.
Maybe the artist associates himself with the sad black-and-white fish in the left corner which looks like an outcast among its bright goldfish relatives who squint at it so scornfully and contemptuously.
Or maybe this is just a really pretty drawing of playful little fishes. Who knows!
- It looks really cheerful and lovely at first sight and at the same time has a hidden message to reflect on;
- Goldfish are a well-known of good luck and good fortune;
- Adds a whole new layer of style and color to your interior design.
The paintings are made to order, which takes about a week. These are unique works, therefore there may be slight differences from the photo.
About the artist:
Krisanachai Sripila spent his childhood and adolescence in the small town of Pai in Thailand, which has become famous among tourists and locals thanks to its beautiful nature and hippie vibe. While his family had not approved of his love for painting, he still managed to enter Thai art circles through self-education with the only help of his own talent and perseverance.
At the age of 21 he moved to Bangkok to pursue his passion further. His art was appreciated and selected for exhibitions at several prominent Thai universities.
Krisanachai's acrylic paintings are sharp, full of acumen and subtle irony. The warmth and joie de vivre they emanate can bring out a smile on the face of any art enthusiast.
