About Win

At the age of 21 he moved to Bangkok to study Fine Arts, majoring in Painting, at Rajamangala Institute of Technology, Phra Nakhon Tai Campus, which he completed with a Bachelor in 2004.

Since finishing his degree Win has spent years working in numerous art galleries in the South of Thailand, in Koh Samui, Phuket, Koh Lanta and Kao Lak. From 2008 to 2012 he had his own art studio on Railay beach in Krabi.

Win has also joined in art exhibitions in Nakhon Si Thammarat (Silapa Hattakam School) and Krabi (Krabi Art Museum). Additionally, his art work has been taken abroad, where it received a lot of positive attention, through his extensive travels to Australia, India, Indonesia and Europe (Switzerland and Italy).

Since 2014 he has been based on Koh Phayam, on Thailand‘s Andaman coast, where he and his wife Tanja have worked hard to build up Art Yoga Homestay.
