18 NOVEMBER 2010 – 5 JANUARY 2011
Opening reception Thursday 18 November 2010 starting 6.30pm
Exotissimo Gallery in collaboration with Toot Yung Gallery is pleased to present “Garden of Eden”, the first solo exhibition of Chiang Mai based artist Donkajohn Kaweetarapakorn.
Donkajohn Kaweetarapakorn is a self taught artist. With a deeply romantic vision of his art, Donkajohn sought to express the primal and elemental forces of life. His prints, done in an even very thin line, focus mainly on the human figure. The purity and simplicity of the line can be compared to some of the latest drawings and ceramic works by Jean Cocteau, also expressing themes of sexuality and gender as well as more symbolic approaches including stylized figures and animals.
