The KL Lifestyle Art Space is holding a solo exhibition by British-Indian artist Ketna Patel entitled ‘Rojak Asia’. It seems that pop art is currently the in-trend as there are several other art shows which are also in this genre. Ketna who is a self-claimed nomad staying in Singapore at the moment will be showing off her latest series of work which will be demonstrating her take on pop culture and art. Here, you will be able to immerse into the integration of art and advertising which is apparent and evidently influenced by the likes and works of pop art icon Andy Warhol.
The ‘Rojak Asia’ show will be held from 3 May to 15 June, 2012 and will be opened to the public from 12.00pm to 9.00pm daily. Admission to the KL Lifestyle Artspace is free and you will be welcomed by some of the most exciting paintings of today. The paintings are highly colourful where Ketna keeps the subject matter as implied in her show title. This means that there will be a lot of strong Asian elements which are all painted in a vibrant mix of colours. Ketna applies the concept where she mixes and matches the subject matter of several culture and tradition and then indulge them into the popular and iconic artistic genre to demonstrate her ‘Rojak’ ideology. She uses an Asian street narrative style to depict her expression here and it would involve her experimental approach by adopting the likes of umbrellas, lamps, skeletons and sofas in her work.
