Contestant Duangjai Jansaunoi, 23, takes part in the 'Thailand's Got Talent' TV show in Bangkok, Thailand on June 17, 2012.

Thailand's Ministry of Culture is investigating whether a TV talent show broke censorship laws after one of its contestants painted a canvas with her breasts, The European Pressphoto Agency reports.

Duangjai Jansaunoi, 23, drew a yellow outline of a man on a canvas, stripped off her shirt, poured paint over her breasts and proceeded to fill in the picture.

Two out of the three judges on 'Thailand's Got Talent', both of them men, voted in favour of Duangjai moving on to the second round of the competition. 

Summoning the show's producers to explain themselves, Culture Minister Sukumol Kunplome said Monday that the incident was "very shocking".
