"A Bold Harmony” resonates through Armenia, Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan, and Vietnam, as a diverse group of Asian artists come together to express their unique voices on the canvas. Among them are renowned painters like Rafael Megall, Sophie-Yen Bretez, Rai Julian, Uji Handoko Eko Saputro, known as Hahan, Tiffany Lafuente, and Chang Teng Yuan.
This striking exhibition, curated by Michela Sena for Tang Gallery in October, brings forth a collection of figurative paintings that transcend geographical and temporal boundaries. Each artist's work, originating from different corners of Asia and influenced by various cultural and historical backgrounds, merges into a beautiful symphony of vibrant and bold artistic expressions. Their canvases, though diverse in style and content, unite in a perfect choir of colorful voices that sing together, creating a harmonious blend of artistry that captivates and inspires.
These artists, hailing from regions so diverse, bring with them a tapestry of cultural experiences and artistic influences. It is a testimony to the universality of art that transcends borders and connects people from all walks of life.
As you wander through the gallery, you'll encounter a symphony of emotions and ideas painted onto canvas. Rafael Megall’s work may transport you to his visionary and intimate world, while Sophie-Yen Bretez's brushstrokes reveal the stories of her dream-like surrealist figuration and depiction of her emotional states. Rai Julian's pieces resonate with the spirit of heartening tales and profound artistic poetry, and Uji Handoko Eko Saputro, known as Hahan, generates a sense of dynamism and whimsy in an upside-down world filled with humorous irony. Tiffany Lafuente's work goes beyond in critiquing global world, unearths further layers, and exposes our voyeuristic fascination triggered by depictions of individuals. And Chang Teng Yuan's creations with fictional means, through paintings as the carriers of his thoughts, re-constructs and creates new visual images with the fusion of the east and west.
The diverse styles and themes on display, from realistic portraiture to interpretations of nature and culture, create a vivid and captivating ensemble that captures the essence of Asia's artistic prowess. The harmony between these colorful voices mirrors the complex and beautiful mosaic of Asian culture and history, transcending language and time. As you immerse yourself in this exhibition, you'll find not only a source of inspiration but also a reminder of the power of art to connect us all in a harmonious blend of creativity and cultural understanding.
