Their work explores the theme "Asian Contemporary Art: Rooted in the Past, Looking Into the Future" as inspired by the artists' personal experiences and the culture they grew up in. It aims to tackle important issues like urbanization and Asia's consistent rise to economic power.
Moving forward, KOHLER is looking into partnering with more creatives with the goal of making art closer and more accessible to the public.
