Seine Kongruangkit— Art Director

Hi! I’m Seine

(she/they), Named after the river in Paris. I was born and raised in Bangkok, where people spit into the river. Currently I’m working as an art director, comedian and artist. Even though my most irrational fear is being chased by the Mona Lisa.

As a queer person of color, I’ve been using my creativity to create projects that help raise awareness about Asian culture, LGBTQ+ and other causes I care about. I have exhibited works in Berlin, Aalborg, Bangkok Design Week and Miami Art Basel.

My life goal is to be in gummy worms commercial, as the gummy worm himself. So far, my journey has lead me to AKQA Bloom, where I’m currently getting paid to come up with purposeful ideas for the earth. And I guess that’s close enough.
