His achievements are mostly related to applied tradition and Thai culture being represented as oil-paintings and water-colour paintings, whereas the oil paintings received compliments from Prof. Silpa Bhirasri. His achievements have been valued all around the world and his most important achievement is the oil-painting of Thailand’s Kings as well as their families.
It has been said that Traditional Art has two dimensions, line and flat colour, whereas International Art has three dimensions, line, colour and shadow. Prof.Chalerm’s suggestion was that if you want to develop your work, you should be stable in two dimensions. Line should be used to express delicate actions and facial expressions whereas flat colour is more suitable for drawing background and environment.
