Stroll, Stop and Stare presents Yi Pei Loh’s art on paper depicting surrounding and everyday life of his living neighbourhood, St Kilda. By observing everyday objects, landscapes and architecture, the artist is inspired to create light-hearted and interesting art in different media. Yi Pei likes to strolls around in the neighbourhood and often surprised by the beauty of the common as well the extraordinary of local place. Those discoveries always inspire the artist with passing whims which eventually shape his works that see the interplay of the realistic and the fictional.

Opening: 4th Oct, 6:30 – 8pm

Curiosity Wood by Yi Pei Loh presents a mystical and mysterious forest that invites the viewers into the artist’s imaginary land which peculiar, strange and sensitive living things share their stories. The illustrated flora and fauna are metaphor of feelings and emotions of human being.

Watercolour and Chinese ink on paper weighs heavily in Yi Pei’s art practice. While being consistent in using the medium, Yi Pei explores a range of artistic styles and expression to tell different stories as he treats every single exhibition of his as an individual picture book.
