Kalwit Studio & Gallery will present artwork by Japanese creators and artists during "Cross Over Vol. 38: Japanese Art Collective" from Saturday to June 12.

On display will be almost 100 art pieces by 41 Japanese artists who have yet to be discovered. Their techniques range from acrylic on canvas to oil on canvas, watercolour, lithograph, digital print, ceramic, Japanese paint and charcoal and chalk on Japanese paper.

Founded by Yashiro Hiroyuki, a graphic artist and exhibitor widely known as Peddy Pot, Cross Over is an art collective that has organised international exhibitions and art fairs primarily in Asian countries.

The aim is to provide opportunities to Japanese artists of various genres such as graphic designers, painters, performers and photographers to present a different side of Japan to viewers interested in Japanese culture and art.

The meaning of "cross over" is the point at which artworks of various styles and visitors can interact in international art exhibitions, allowing all participants to broaden their perspectives and obtain new values.

The group is planning to hold exhibitions in Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia and Myanmar.

Kalwit Studio & Gallery is on Ruamrudee 2, Witthayu Road and open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm. There is no admission fee.
