Persistent Problems features a network of highways, trains and cars, tightly bound together in a knot as they intersect and overlap with one another.
Here, the pace and energy of an urban city is captured through the artist’s composition of linear roads congregating in a central focal point of gridlock. Through the painting, the artist conveys the impact of being surrounded by chaos in everyday life through persistent problems such as Bangkok’s traffic congestion, urban sprawl and mass transit system outages.
