Description

About the Exhibition
This collection of images is the gradual trajectory of Edo’s art style, Infinite Inception Art. Edo chose 20 of his favorite pieces from each collection from his first showcase in 2015 through 2019, each holding a very memorable moment in his heart, mind, and spirit. As you go on this journey, offer yourself to these pieces. You’ll come to find that the memories embedded in each of these pieces also remind you of moments you have experienced in your life, which ultimately connects you with the Edo and to each other. Don’t expect to capture everything within a single viewing, rather, every viewing reveals something new, something different, something infinite. Curated by Edo and Leigh Fagin.
