They are a collective of artists and creatives. They understand the power to work together, to experiment, to share ideas, to be inspired. The collectives also offer a sense of support.
The collective exhibitions include Shanghai Chang textiles, KWN23 paintings, and Many Sin steel sculptures and silkscreens. In their latest 180 ° exhibition, the artists present dresses inspired by 17th century European fashion, Sin’s many engravings and sculptures exploring the well-being of humanity and the complex interrelationships between man and his environment. KWN23, a graffiti artist, is inspired by the combination of Sanskrit characters, European graffiti and its enduring appeal for urban decadence, as well as the transient nature of street art. This fugacity is important to the artist and reflects his Buddhist beliefs about the reincarnation and circularity of life.
