Pattana Chuenmana’s first serious interest in forms and textures of automobiles can be dated back to early 2012 when he was involved in an automobile accident. Fortunately for him, he escaped unscathed. For days, he relived the moment of the accident in his mind, where he could hear the sound of metal crushing, and feel the quivering movements of his body, along with the smell of burning rubber as the tires slid relentlessly on the rough road. Thinking back, Chuenmana finds the whole ordeal horrifying yet exciting, in a bizarre way. He was driven and inspired to use the experience as part of his artistic direction.
