KWIT 5 - Elements @ Soma Art Cafe

Graduated from the Oil Painting Department of The University of Fine Arts in 2010, Vietnamese artist KWIT 5 has been experimenting with various techniques and new mediums. Besides creating artworks from traditional materials, he uses computer graphics collaboratively to create painting series Elements

Primary elements of art such as line, colour, texture, space, and shape, are the main inspiration as well as the subject in his works. As two separate entities collaborating, the graphic program helps the artist quickly create shapes with mechanical curves that he can hardly render otherwise. This allows him the freedom and time to experiment with how different colours interact when put together. Moving away from expressive and unrestrained brush strokes he learned in university, the forms in series Elements appear sharp and superflat. The artist's liberating experimentation can be seen through abstract but visually direct images. In imagination, from primary elements, they can transform into anything.

Soma Art Lounge, in collaboration with AsiaHues, is pleased to present KWIT 5’s colourful series of artworks, to be on display from 26 April to 14 June.
