These five images are part of a series of lithographs created in Germany during 1995 when Apichai was concentrating on simple triangular, square and circular forms. They draw our minds to focus on the importance of the basics in life, according to Buddhist philosophy.

Apichai felt pressure in Germany; to learn the local language, to be and do something valuable. As an artist, he wanted to be his self and concentrate on his art. While walking to the university workshop each day, Apichai began to build a new appreciation for the soil and water mixing underfoot and incorporated the concept into these 'dripping' images. He did not see these materials as 'dirty', but as fundamental and spiritual elements.
