The first solo exhibition by Thai artist, Tawan Wattuya, in Singapore presented by Hatch Art Project invites viewers to contemplate the state of humanity and the role of art in imagining possibilities for liberation. The exhibition will feature a selection of Tawan’s watercolour paintings that reveal his perspectives on global socio-political issues and his personal reflections about society.
Through the vivid depiction of various human figures ranging from political figures, pop culture icons, soldiers, extremists, and sex workers, Tawan’s paintings invites viewers to contemplate a range of interconnected contemporary issues pertaining to violence, terror, and representation. By choosing to paint these controversial and provocative figures, Tawan also highlights the diversity of people and opinions that exist and influence the state of global politics today.
