Politician -Exhibition of Paintings by Ashok.U

Ashok.U has been consistent as a painter and has been exploring the idea of painting on the format of a box. This concept gave him an opportunity to approach the box with techniques used in package design. His current preoccupation is politics and the politician. He questions the system using popular symbols. In this exhibition fragments of symbols come together to create new meanings. The viewer is invited to visually unwrap the box. The box is empty!

Ashok.U studied at the Ken School of Art, where he graduated in 2000. Ashok works as a graphic designer and has been actively participating in group shows. This is his first solo show.
