Purple Rain

Hi all Bangkok, Ayuthaya, and other provinces are in great deluge. The situation has not improved in the past days and we need your help. Please Help us bring help to the victims. Our students and and their families are suffering. Please try to help us bring help to people.

I have dedicated this Oil Pastel drawing to all the flood victims of Thailand.

Purple Rain is my way of expressing how much I feel about the flood that has devastated provinces and cities in Thailand. We are at our best comfort now, people need help!



Ali Bernie Buga-y has been a teacher in arts and music to different international schools in Thailand for nine years until he decided to enjoy the full time lifestyle of being a visual artist. Together with his family, he travels to different national parks in Thailand to experience true encounters in nature and the wildlife. His love for the birds and animals is the driving force that motivates him to photograph and paint them as seen in the wild. The joys of birding can only be shared through visual representations of these lovely feathered creatures carefully studied and observed in their natural habitat. As a graduate of Theology, he perfectly understands that somehow man should find ways to emerge himself to an edenic experience here on earth; and through these physical experiences man may again find spirituality beholding nature. Complicated as it may seem, Bernie finds it refreshing to the mind and soul as nature reveals itself when he observes and study them carefully through photography.
