Nakorn Sriphet came from the east coast of Thailand, Cholburi Province, and was born into a soldier’s family. He was interested in art and started to learn about it from a neighbor. Since he was 10 years old, he created caricatures to sell in his neighborhood area. After finishing junior high school, he continued his education at Cholburi Vocational School in the faculty of fine art. He won many student awards during his education, including 2nd prize from The Regional Skill Contest of Drawing & Sculpture. Consequently, he earned a scholarship to study at Burapha University, Chonburi. After studying drawing and painting at the university, Nakorn decided to quit the school and work full-time in Art Development at Phuket Fantasy. Nakorn decided that job was not his caliber, and that he had to make a big change again. He rented a little corner in Phuket Walking Street and created caricature to sell, as he did for many years before. One day, his brother showed him the brochure from Ani Art Academy on Koh Yao Noi. He decided to pursue this chance, and now, he is one of the young artists at Ani Art Academy Thailand.
