The Light-box series






Throughout the exhibition's  duration, 
I overheard comments from attendees, 
"its reminiscent of Jean-Michel Basquiat,
 or it looks like a Keith Haring." 


I say yes, indeed and even Pablo Picasso.


Chouk uses paintings, stretched canvases, 
video installation , light-boxes, produced by Duggal Visual Solutions.
