Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Visarute Angkatavanich


Humoring the Goddess

Born in 1970, Visarute Angkatavanich is a Bangkok-based Thai photographer  based in Thailand. He graduated in Communication Arts majoring in advertising from Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. 

His stunning crystal-clear photos of Siamese fighting fish as they dance in the water make it seem as though they are suspended in air instead of water.Their quick, elegant movement  is a mesmerizing scene, captured perfectly by Angkatavanich – their unique sense of motion frozen in time through his brilliant photographs.The Siamese fighting fish, known simply as the betta in the West, is a small fish that originates from the rice paddies of Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.

They have been bred since the 19th century (and possibly sooner) for their flamboyant appearance and for their territorial aggression.

  1. WOW… I used to keep an Aquarium for around fifteen years.. and had one of these little fellows in my Tropical Tank for a few years….
    He was a gentle fish…. Who loved to show off his fins… I so feel for them when kept in the Petshop aquariums… in small little tanks….
    I allowed my Tank to deplete naturally as it was quite a large one, and as we were not getting any younger had to think of the future and our ability to keep it properly maintained..
    But we had hours of joy from our fishy friends.. 🙂
