In 2006, I modified the way to write my family name, which is Wantanee Siripattananuntakoon to my artist name Wantanee Siripattananuntakul. The question is: What would I like to say to the viewers? Or is it only a different way of writing?

Actually Thai names of Thai people can be translated to English names in different form of writing. Even though they have the same meaning, but for me, it is not only play with the names as a sign of language, but I would like to stress the title part of the artist name in the art context also. The acceptance of an artist name gives me an entire artistic identity, so that I make everything become art. Additionally, the artist’s name is important for the impossible increase in the value of the art object, another reason why an artist would like to become well-known.
