About the exhibition:
New artworks from French painter Yvan Magnani inspired by his last stay in Malaysia in 2018, where he comes regularly.
In the great metropolis, two worlds share the same space. One is much older than the other.
Each of them is searching for paradise. With Red with Black, painting is only driven by emotion. Dans la grande métropole, deux mondes se partagent l’espace, l’un est beaucoup plus ancien que l’autre.Chacun recherche son paradis. Avec le rouge, avec le noir, la peinture ne choisit que l’émotion.
