Utopia(s) at The Art Passage brings together the vision of two distinctive artists, and this fusion within the exhibition creates a platform that allows us to look at our society from a different perspective. Dreaming of other possible worlds, the artists offer glimpses into imaginary alternative universes, a welcome sight for eyes made sore by our urban pandemic society.
Knakorn’s works depict aspirations for a better life. Forcing the viewer to confront and rethink their existing notions of love, happiness, and success, Knakorn creates surreal scenes of graceful subjects that are reminiscent of nude Classicism and unique juxtapositions from Surrealism. The artist dreams of a better world using palettes of pinks and blues, allowing the viewer to rediscover what it means to be living in our current society.
Vani’s complex and symbolic work reminds us that we reach new heights as a society when we are able to balance progress and modernisation with the preservation of our environment. Silver-award winner of the UOB painting of the year in 2017, the artist makes use of his intricate technique to detail the inner workings of society, and to illustrate how the contribution of each common worker matters to create something we can all be proud of.
