Whitestone Gallery Taipei is pleased to announce the opening of “Inside : Ahhi Choi solo exhibition”.
Ahhi Choi was born in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. He came to recognition after exhibition in New York in 2014 and has since exhibited internationally. The curvilinear movement in the work of Ahhi Choi is both buoyant and ecstatic, expressing innate sense of adventure the artist holds in his mind. After his study in Los Angeles he traveled through the Western United States: it was during this stateside excursion that the artist was deeply impressed by the massive scale of National Parks and developed an intimate bond with the grandeur and majesty of nature. Upon his return to Kobe, the cramped and overcrowded lifestyle of urban Japan was causing him to feel nostalgic. The artist began to take ink to paper forming an abstract diary of his adventures: he interprets the silhouettes, pictures, words and letters from the well of his memory into energetic lines appeared throughout his work.
