In driving the ambiance, we combined prominent artists’ exhibitions and partnered with JWD Art Space.

Visiting artists derive from several parts of the world namely Denmark’s Johan Deckmann, USA’s Richard Colman, Maxwell McMaster, and Jordan Nickel as well as Japan’s Snipe1, with Deckmann and Colman showcasing for the first time in Thailand.
From Copenhagen, Johan Deckmann’s “The Art of Embracing Chaos” is a breath of fresh air towards transparency and purpose amid life’s volatility, thus, promoting inspiration, motivation, and self-realization. As a “text-based artist”, Deckmann believes that letters can express meaning as all art forms can. Merging strengths in painting, poetry, and psychology, he wittily bares the complexities of life with letters on books and canvases, with the intention for spectators to self-reflect. Transcending across gender, culture, and age, his satiric honesty is portrayed with humor yet rationality, believing in the beauty and simplicity of words.
“I am very excited to be exhibiting in Thailand for the first time and I anticipate audiences’ reflections. Personally, this exhibition has special meaning, and it is a huge inspiration to know that it will be experienced by audiences on the other side of the globe. My works address everyone with a relationship, both with themselves and others. We share the gift of life, with both challenges and blessings. Normally, I circulate different subjects and illuminate them in words to stimulate the mind. For this exhibition, I selected themes ranging from hope to the origin of man, success and life goals, alcohol, and fear of the future of civilization. My inspirations stem from human behavior but also from the increasingly unpredictable world. I raise perplexing questions such as How individuals mentally survive amid this chaos? Is escapism a sustainable solution? Why are we here in the first place? Is there any hope? As a psychotherapist, I always aim to stimulate awareness.” Deckmann discusses.
From the USA, exhibitor Richard Colman is known for playing with symbolic imagery, fearless geometry, and personal symbols. His art has elaborate formations and distinct colors that reflect notions of social hierarchies, relationships, life, and death. His artworks range from paintings, murals, sculptures, and installations. This is also his first exhibition in Thailand with Chin’s Gallery.
Among talented exhibitors is USA-based, Maxwell McMaster’s works which are inspired by his local settings. He alters colors, shapes, and textures to accentuate scenes from his trips and daily routines. The results are abstract and minimal designs with complexity. They allow viewers to reflect on life and its ambiguities while remembering its beauty.
Also, from the USA, Jordan Nickel a.k.a. POSE, blends pop arts, comics, cartoons, and street arts in his robust, fragmented murals and paintings on canvas, encapsulating crisp illustrations and vibrant color palettes. He was introduced to graffiti early in life and was fascinated by the vivid letterings. He possesses the distinguished ability to select daily snapshots and pour them into modern pop art paintings for more profound communication.
Finally, exhibiting with Chin’s Gallery, Snipe1 is among Japan’s pioneer graffiti writers. He has been active since the dawn of Japan’s graffiti settings and later in New York during his teenage years. Upon moving back, Snipe1 was dedicated to Japanese graffiti, contributing to the rise of the culture. His works incorporate the sensibility of street art but with an edge of “dirtiness”, resulting in his unique style. Over the years, he collaborated with famous fashion brands and artistic productions, proving himself at the forefront of Asian urban contemporary art.
Chin’s Gallery’s extravagant exhibition runs from November 11th to December 17th at the JWD Art Space.
