Interview with Pointillism Artist, Spider Money

How did you get started doing what you do?
I have been fully living in the art world since I attended Art University. Though I started doing artwork when I was a Sophomore as one of my hobbies and full-time after I graduated.

How would you describe your creative style?
It’s Dot-drawing or pointillism. A drawing made from thousands of dots.

How have others reacted to your work?
Most of the time they like it which is good.

What’s your inspiration?
My inspirations are a mixture of Art History, such as historic ornaments, mixed with natures.

What is art to you?
Art is communication to the world: my way of expressing my thoughts and feelings the way that words couldn’t.

What does your typical day look like?
I always wake up early to prepare for today’s schedule. I start working around 9-10am and take a break at noon, and get back to work at 5 pm. I love working at night, I usually end up working ’till 2am.

How long does it typically take for you to finish a piece?
As detailed as it could be, it usually takes me about 5-7 days to finish 12”×15” artwork.

How do you keep motivated?
Keep working, keep finding things that motivate you no matter how silly it could be. I often use music or films to keep my focus, just turn on high volume and let it flow from your ears to your brain.

What do you hope to accomplish with your work?
I want my client to be as happy with my finished artwork as I am happy. If they understand my art then my work is accomplished.

What do you want others to take away from your work?
I want my artwork to inspire them in any way, especially young people who one day want to become an artist as I am.

What, if anything, would you tell your younger self?
Forget the world, just be who you are, be proud, and own it.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
During my Thesis project, my professor told me to ignore the criticism and just do what you want to do because, in the end, it’s your work.

Any words of wisdom to aspiring artists who want to pursue a similar career?
Be Original.

What are your thoughts on art school?
I graduated from Silpakorn University which is a well-known art school in Thailand. Art school is like other schools but with more freedom on how you would express yourself in finding who you really are.

What’s your dream project?
I want to open my exhibition and surround myself with every artwork I have made and let myself become one of my artworks.

What art supplies do you use?
I often use fine-line pens, brush pens, and fine art paper. Copic multi-liner is great for dot-work, I recommend.

What’s your process like?
I draw a rough sketch first before I go with the final piece. My artwork starts with painting with brush pens, to give it more depth, and then the dot-work begins.

How could the art industry become better in your opinion?
I want the industry to stay on its ground, know what it is and what it’s worth. Sometimes social and mainstream can overcome and ruin it.
