The Akha people originate in China and Tibet, and have migrated to Laos, Myanmar (Burma) and northern Thailand. ; About the Artist: Oraphat; "I am a joyful person. I like reading, photography, traveling, searching for new knowledge. I am happy to be able to do the things I love, especially creating artworks. I believe in Buddhism and adhere to the Thai culture. I like to go to temples and ancient places, and I do merit by giving food alms to Buddhist monks. My works and my choice of colors express my imagination and my feelings. Hill tribe kids have their own identity, which I find greatly interesting. That is why I decided to represent them and their identity through my own style and colors. However, I will continue creating what impresses me, developing and improving my style and varying the themes and subjects as time passes."
