Hi there, I’m Piamrak Hattakitkosol…
or Ping, in short. :-)
I’m a multidisciplinary artist, lingerie designer, singer/voice-over artist, tap dance instructor, newbie coffee enthusiast, and a professional people doodler, working and living in NYC.
At the core, I am all about the love of arts, music, and design with a business mindset. My mission is to maximize my multi-talents to inspire, connect, and help to better others through creating meaningful arts, products, and services, with passion and quality.
Piamrak Hattakitkosol, or “Ping Hatta” in short, was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand and moved to New York at the age of eighteen. She is an NYC-based fashion illustrator, lingerie designer, maker, and live portrait artist working in fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. Her work is a visual diary of her life, capturing moments and bringing out the best character in people with a sense of humor. She is recognized by her bold, graffiti-inspired style of quirky, playful girl characters with a touch of fashion world’s personalities. She also specializes in on-site live portrait sketching for corporate and private clients. She works across a variety of different media, including markers, print, acrylic, and textiles.
Bright, bold –and sometimes, funny– is how Ping Hatta perceive fashion. Her recent works celebrate the excitement (and the unexpected) that the fashion industry brought into the world. The series also pays homage to the world’s renowned fashion designers: Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Junya Watanabe, Dolce & Gabbana, and more. Hatta also brings together her favorite elements – exaggerated silhouettes, quirky confidence, street-art-inspired characters.
She has been featured in publications and media such as American Illustration and her works have garnered international attention including Anna Sui, Del Pozo, Dolce Gabbana, Marc Jacobs Instagrams.
Apart from art and lingerie design, she is a singer, voice-over artist, tap dance instructor, and recently co-founded LOOP Fair-trade, a non-profit organization that empowers Ecuadorian artisans through crafts and design. When she is not doing all of the above, she volunteers as a contributor for Thai Artists in New York (TANY), enjoys watching cat videos, reading about psychology, and she has a deep (caffeinated) love for specialty coffee.
