Vertical Gallery is very proud to present “Sorry I can’t talk right now”, the first USA solo show from Thai artist 2CHOEY. The exhibition is July 8 – 29, 2023 with an opening day reception on Saturday July 8, noon-5pm.
“Sorry I can’t talk right now” addresses situations in life that may be dangerous, unsafe, or uncomfortable. Known for painting hands as the characters faces, this show explores the artist having the characters use hand signs when they cannot use sound. The theme of the work follows his critical, politically neutral outlook on society.
2CHOEY is a Bangkok based self-taught artist. With a background in Urban Architecture, 2CHOEY was an art director in an ad agency. He soon started selling paintings and realized he enjoyed painting more than working in advertising. 2CHOEY’s signature characters, ‘Fingies’, reinterprets pop culture icons within the framework of hands, fists and fingers in his playful and very unique style.
2CHOEY has participated in several group shows at Vertical Gallery, and this is his first solo show in the United States.
