Jirasak’s work demonstrates the life experience and the passage of time through the wrinkles on the elderly’s face. A desire for working on charcoal is to create dramatic and realistic drawings. This allows him to produce high-contrast images that are visually bold and emotionally expressive.
Jirasak combined his Buddhism believe to his works by putting the elderly into the post of “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. In Buddhist tradition this means to not dwell on evil thoughts.
