Songdej is a renowned Thai artist. born and raised in Chiang Rai, Thailand, as part of a large family out in the countryside of Lanna. Since he can remember he was raised by his grandmother, and wherever she would go, he would surely follow - particularly when she went to the temple to make merit. While there, Songdej had the chance to play around and discover all the paintings and decorations of the temple, which he used as models in his first drawings and sketches. Songdej certainly absorbed everything he learned in temples, the Buddhist teachings, the festivals, and the traditions of the art inside them. He was impressed by everything he saw in these environments. He would also say that his simple life in the countryside made a strong impression in his mind, and had an influence on his life and work later on. When Songdej had the chance to study at the Rajamangala University of Technology, Lanna, he actually discovered that perhaps it wasn’t his preferred field, and really there were many people much better skilled and suited to it. So he lost a degree of interest in his studies, until he attended the lecture describing the artist’s career path, held by Chalemchai Khositphiphat, a Thai visual artist. This lecture inspired him so greatly that he began thinking of this as a serious career path, and started to pursue his art ever more passionately. Recently, Songdej has managed to follow his dream of returning to his hometown, the Mae Chan district, Chiang Rai, and has built an art gallery there. He intends to use the gallery as an educational center for art and culture; a place where all art lovers can gather in Chiang Rai and see a wonderfully unique collection of artworks.
