Dop Ameen

Everything but the art side

Bangkok Psycho | Fine Art Photography | Dop Ameen

Dop Ameen is a fine art photographer, art consultant and curator. Inspired by alternative western art scene, following the steps of controversial artists, Dop Ameen is not his given name, but the name of his creative alter-ego, derived from the dopamine molecule, which is a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. This molecule also helps regulate movement and emotional responses, and it enables us not only to see rewards, but to take action to move toward them. The presence of a certain kind of dopamine receptor is also associated with sensation-seeking people, more commonly known as “risk takers.” Sensation-seeking is the tendency to pursue sensory pleasure and excitement. Dop Ameen is a trained scientist and connecting his art with neurosciences provides some clues to his artistic intentions. The Bangkok Psycho Art Gallery is like dopamine, as it intends to give pleasure to exploring the unrevealed person buried deep inside all of us. At least for one reason, no one is innocent.
