Phansakdi Chakkapak is a botanical artist from Thailand who paints in watercolour. His colours are typically tropical and sensational.
I had the pleasure of meeting him last summer at the Jonathan Cooper Park Walk Gallery in Chelsea. (see my blog post about 25th anniversary exhibition of the Shirley Sherwood Collection)
Thursday 16th June is the last day of another exhibition - this time a solo exhibition of his work called 100 Botanical Beauties which also helps mark the 100th anniversary of Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. It's been running since March when Dr. Sherwood visited him in March 2016, just before it opened as his first guest of honour.
Phansakdi Chakkapak has been working as a freelance botanical artist since 1999 and he has created a lot of paintings and has a lot of collectors. Most of his collectors are from Thailand - however Shirley Sherwood has bought several of his works and these are now being seen on a regular basis at the gallery at Kew.
Anybody serious about building a collection of botanical art should take a very long look at his paintings.
