With a bachelor's degree in Art Education from Chulalongkorn University, 34-year-old Rukkit "Gift" Kwanhawan is a graphic artist whose works can be seen both on the streets and in galleries. His distinctive renditions of animals with the use of the "block stencil" technique has earned him an elevated place in the Thai art scene. He recently contributed his works to various art projects and events such as "Do You Read Me?", "Bukruk" and "Unspoken Dialogue". His designs have also been commissioned on products of local bag maker URFACE and French clothing brand Mamama. Gift's latest project, "Tikkur", is named from an informal way to say sticker in Thai and is also his name spelt backwards. It allows people to create their own image with stickers that come in different shapes and patterns. You can buy a Tikkur pack at Sneaka Villa* in Siam Square Soi 2 (089-168-6336), Superrzaaap in Terminal 21 (02-108-0573), DESIGNITI & The FEDeration in Beacon Zone of CentralWorld and BKK Graff store in Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC).
