After sell-out shows in Queenstown over years past, this globally renowned Thai Artist VIRUT will exhibit in Auckland for the first time!
Virut is an artist overflowing with creativity. He ditches the traditional oil brush for piles of colourful magazine cuttings. This successful formula sees tiny scraps of colourful paper, meticulously layered one next to the other to produce eye-popping portraits. His larger than life collages are complex and vivid, from a distance the portraits are almost hyperrealistic, viewed closely the original image softly dissolves into the layers of paper. Virut's sole goal is to immortalise the beauty of the people he creates.
These works need to be seen in the flesh to be fully appreciated. This is an exhibition not to miss.
Exhibition Opening: Thursday 22nd April, 5PM - 7:30PM
Ends: Tuesday 18th of May
