Opening this Friday at Koi Art Gallery is "Why We Fight", a solo exhibition by Thai artist Preecha Raksorn whose paintings portray the perpetual struggle for survival via a unique combination of storytelling and comic-book art. He begins this story with an old man painting a portrait of a younger man. When the painting is complete, the series ignites into a full-blown narration of constant struggles and fights after the young man in the image jumps out of the canvas and into the real world. Preecha's oil paintings skilfully recreate a comic-book effect through the use of symbolism, colour and layout, creating a dynamic vocabulary that should resonate with all viewers. The series progresses to a captivating, action-packed climax _ one that is left open for the audience to analyse. Why We Fight will continue at Koi Art Gallery until Nov 30. The gallery is located on Sukhumvit Soi 31 and its opening hours are 11 am to 7 pm. Call 02-662-3218.
