What is now known as Thai "traditional" art has strict rules in place in terms of preservation, reproduction, and standardization without reflection of the present society. I concerned this issue as the potential cause that have disconnected "traditional" art from the present (Thai) society and explored possible ways to utilize the artistic value inherent in traditional Thai art, specifically Ramayana-inspired paintings, and attempt to modernize Thai traditional painting, making it meaningful to contemporary audiences.
This may not only offer another way of creating mythological painting but could also possibly be another method of preservation, ensuring the longevity of Thai traditional art.
