A joint exhibition featuring two distinct body of artworks that capture the allure of the Mekong region by artists Sivilay Souvannasing (Laos) and Songwoot Kaewvisit (Thailand). Sivilay applies his trademark approach of heavy layers of oil and complex juxtaposition of imagery, capturing scenes of marketplace, festivals and the Hmong people, whilst Songwoot captures the glorious moments of harvest with his depiction of farmers amidst vast, golden fields of rice.

This exhibition is the first installment under the Mekong Collective Series 2012 by M Gallery which showcases creative talents from the Mekong region.
