Naraphat Sakarthornsap graduated from the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Chulalongkorn University. Flowers are important elements of the stories behind his artworks with words as secret codes that guide viewers to the true answers behind them. Flowers have always played a big role ever since his very first memories. Many of his childhood pictures show a little boy with flowers in his hands and on the pages of his notebooks were full of words that rarely relate to the subjects he was learning. His photographs are often presented with some words that contain special implications, which make his works seem straightforward. However, with intent, his secrets are neatly hidden underneath what is presented. In other words, what he wants others to see may not be what he wants them to know.
