GWKL Art Talk 

​As part of the GWKL program, we will be holding an artist talk session with one of the participating artists, Ajim Juxta, at 10:00 am on Sunday, November 27 2016, at Artemis Art, Publika.

2016 has been a tremendously successful year for Ajim Juxta, his fifth year of practice since deciding to become a full-time visual artist. He was one of the three winners in this year’s Young Art Awards in Taiwan’s premier art fair focused on young artists, Young Art Taipei. He is also one of the recipients of the 2016 Young Guns award, ra recognition of the achievements thus far in his visual art career.

This program will be an opportunity to find out more about Ajim Juxta, how and why he decided to leave a career as an architect to become a full-time artist, and some insights into his artworks.
 
Included in the program will be a Q&A session at the end, allowing the audience to interact with Ajim. For more information and to RSVP, please visit our http://www.artemisartgallery.com/presence/
