ASIN, One Man Chicken Underground Graffiti
Ekkrhat Nhak-anukhor, known by his graffiti tag name ASIN, who, as a child, sold his first cartoon drawing to his own mother for five Thai baht. That moment made him very happy and he’s been drawing ever since. This is how his passion for art has started.
The most recognizable trademark of ASIN’s street art is his character, Chicken. The inspiration came from a Japanese children’s book that compared life at school with life on a farm. On the farm, the chickens are free to move around as they wish and eat all day long. On top of that, His family has had a chicken farm since he was a young boy.
The way ASIN uses his Chicken to send a message via his graffiti is both visually and mentally stimulating. His inspiration comes from what he sees around him as a member of our society. Anything can impact, and use Chicken to tell a story. Sometimes it’s his own story, sometimes it’s yours.
