Neon Utopia: Ahsin Ahsin
Ahsin's fluorescent imagined universe will be painted directly onto the 7m high, Tauranga Art Gallery atrium walls; enveloping you as you walk into the fictional wonderland.
Influenced by 80s & 90s sci-fi and pop culture, Ahsin’s work features transformer-style robots, cataclysmic battles and robotic crocs.
Of his space-age characters, Ahsin says “They are neither good or bad they are just them, just like you are you, and I am me."
This exhibition is Ahsin’s first solo exhibition in a public art gallery. Previously he has exhibited throughout the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region, including major mural works as part of Hamilton’s street-art festival Boon. Ahsin has recently completed postgraduate studies at Wintec, Hamilton.
