Upcoming Exhibition at Rabbit Eye Movement

I'll be exhibiting some new works at my next solo exhibition, Mirror Mirror, in Vienna. The show will be at my friend Nycho's gallery - Rabbit Eye Movement Art Space. Looking forward to it!

Working mostly with ink on paper, Andrea Wan sees her work as a visual journal that reflects her thoughts and experiences. Her drawings combine traditional narrative aesthetics with eerie and surrealist qualities, depicting a world with great sensibility. Andrea finds inspiration by looking outwards to observe her surroundings such as people and places, and looking introspectively into the obscure corners of her subconscious. She believes that our internal and external worlds simultaneously influences and reflects one another, communicating using clues and metaphors, our subconscious dropping hints into our waking life, causing moments of synchronicity. Her new series, Mirror Mirror, explores the dialog between these two coexisting realms with curiosity.

Solo Exhibition at IDOART Lab - Recap

Last November I spent 4 days in Denmark for my Solo exhibition at the Idoart Lab, located at the former TANK shop space in Aarhus.  Rikke and Matias from Idoart were such sweethearts and so are the others I met through this exhibition. We had so much fun hanging out and installing the show together. Below is a nice little video interview they made where I talk about some of my inspirations for this series of work. The trip was short but it was an amazing experience to revisit Denmark and share my art with the people there this time. I'll be back!

Next Stop - Aarhus

I'm happy to announce that I will be having my next solo show in Aarhus, Denmark next week. The exhibition is host by I DO ART Agency at the new I DO ART Lab (former TANK shop space).
It's been a while since when I was living in Denmark in 2007-08, so I'm really looking forward to revisit and exhibit my work there. As some of you might know, I studied at Designskolen Kolding in Denmark for a brief amount of time.  It's also where I started my current art practice, so going back gives me a feeling that things have somehow come to a full circle.

The opening will be on the 21st of November at 18:00 (6pm). Hope I'll see some familiar faces there. 
 Address: I DO ART Lab, Mejlgade 48A, 8000 Aarhus.

The Circle Show

This coming Saturday is the opening of The Circle Show, a big group exhition that I'm organizing (together with Rylsee and Johannes Mundinger) and also part of. The Circle Show features a selection of Berlin based artists within the creative network of Urban Spree, our artist Residency. Some of the participants of the exhibition include Klub 7, BLO, Look & Vidam (The Weird), Hazard Hope & John Reaktor (Sam Crew) etc. 

"Urban Spree is not only an exhibition space but also a cultural melting pot. Since it was founded last year, we’ve already built a vibrant community attracting local creatives as well as artists from all over the world. For the first Circle Show, we've invited a great lineup of artists to make an art piece each, resembling the shape of a circle. The idea of the circle represents our circle of friends that made Urban Spree an amazing place. We are looking forward to showcase the best creatives in Berlin who are closely connected to us."


See full artist lineup below:


Last Sunday, Rylsee and I did some live painting with some of our friends at the ARTnapping fundraising event in Berlin. All proceeds go to the Berlin Children and Youth House to help children in poverty. An afternoon well spent!
