Artist Sanjay Bantawa’s solo art exhibition is currently being held at the Space Art Gallery in Hong Kong and features 25 of the artist’s works. The exhibit started on April 24 and is slated to continue over the next week.

Among the various themes that the paintings exhibit are love, worldly complexities—apparent from the portraits of a couple hugging each other and through a portrait of a horse and a woman together, which serve as a metaphor to illustrate the battle one has to fight against the society.

“The exhibit is my attempt to shed light on such abstractions as happiness, despair, love, beauty and complexities one deals with in his lifetime,” says artist Bantawa.

The exhibit is being organised by Comm-unity Culture Center in Hong Kong.
