Iqi Qoror: Perception In Tow
Artplex Gallery is pleased to present Iqi Qoror: Perception In Tow featuring new artworks by Indonesian visual artist Iqi Qoror. A native of Indonesia, Qoror started his career as a professional visual artist with a master’s degree in Fine Art. His works revolve around the questions of trust, interspersed with fragments of modernity set against his own social experience. Each artwork represents a point of self-reflection: “We live in a catastrophic world and I express my response, my scream, through my works, and I’m constructing a question of our madness.”
Qoror constantly challenges himself to be more experimental and versatile in his art practice, from installation to mixed media painting. Qoror has established himself as one of the fastest rising stars of the Indonesian art scene. Starting with the gradual dominance of the Southeast Asian art market, Qoror now has a growing international collector base through his exhibitions in international hot spots such as Singapore, Hong Kong, and now Los Angeles.
One of Qoror’s greatest strengths is his distinctive multi-media surrealism. Qoror’s combination of different media merges not only different art practices such as painting and embroidery but past and present as well. The combination of modern expressionistic style with pops of color renders his artwork unforgettably visceral. This blend of portraiture, pop textiles, and surrealistic imagery invokes curiosity, confusion, and a playful connection with our contemporary world.
Since the opening of Artplex Gallery in 2018, the gallery continues to be one of the world's leading art galleries specializing in high-quality, original contemporary art representing a broad spectrum of major international artists. Right at home in West Hollywood and within immediate proximity to its sister gallery Artspace Warehouse, Artplex Gallery is an expansive modern space that specializes in international urban, pop, graffiti, figurative, and abstract art catering to the visual impact.
