Politicallly Controversial and Ultra-Violent Illustrations by Baphoboy

Baphoboy is a political artist based in Bangkok. Practicing his art helps him deal with the stress of news and politics, but he also wants to change things.

With his characters, who are often fixedly ‘smiling’ and engaged in sexualized, ultra-violent imagery, he holds a mirror up to Thailand’s elite, and hopes to draw a wider audience to politics and encourage them to care about basic human rights, equality, and fairness in Thai society. Baphoboy’s work usually contains hidden messages and symbols: The more you know about Thailand and Thai history, the more you can see in the images.
