Artwork description:

The expression “to have egg on one’s face” means to look foolish or feel embarrassed. But what if that egg on your face was actually quite becoming? What if it belonged there? It’s
not likely…unless you’re speaking about the work of artist Ta Thimkaeo.

A fried egg can only have so many expressions, Ta likens it to the mask humans wear to obscure their feelings and emotions. Blanc Magazine.

How my Eggs came about: one day I was frying an egg and thought that would make a great face…It bought back memories of when I was a kid….

When I was a kid at school, we would have to take our lunch box as there were no kitchen or cooking facilities when the dinner bell rang we would all sit on the floor to eat our lunch.

Almost every day I had a fried egg on rice, the other kids would say, ‘Ta fried egg again, you will begin to start looking like a fried egg’.

I used to plead with my sister to have something different, but we had many chickens and many eggs, so it was always fried egg on rice.


My life in the art world is all thanks to a cheeky little drawing I did back in 2010 that drawing completely changed my life.

I want my paintings to have character to tell a story but without words as if using mime, to be dramatic, emotional, sometimes theatrical but always with feelings and always special.
