Titled "Always Near You…Always" this exhibition will run from March 8 to April 23, 2024, marking Handler's largest exhibition in Asia to date. Drawing from his profound personal experiences and childhood memories of popular superheroes, Handler's work explores the narratives of superheroes in with heartfelt personal touch.​

"Love Heals" is the key theme of this exhibition, showcasing Handler's newest creations, each serving as a window into his soul, brimming with profound emotions and narratives. Through his artwork, Handler aims to express humanity's yearning for love and healing. This theme not only reflects his signature style but also embodies his unique observations of life and human nature. Through skillful combinations of color and shape, Handler effectively communicates deep emotions and messages to the audience. The theme resonates not only with his inner world but also strikes a chord within the hearts of viewers, touching upon their deepest emotions.
Hailing from New York, Adam Handler skillfully blends earthy and pastel tones into his artwork, featuring quirky, concise, colorful, and natural elements. Known for his unique whimsical style, Adam challenges societal perceptions through a childlike lens. Central to Handler's artistic repertoire are his iconic characters, including the beloved Ghosts, Wide-eyed Girls, and UFO, each symbolizing the artist's personal journey and emotional depth. These endearing figures serve as beacons of hope and companionship, guiding viewers through the ups and downs of life with warmth and empathy.

Adam's painting techniques, utilizing acrylic paints, oil pastels, pencils, and markers, evoke childlike wonder. By skillfully applying scratches and streaks along the canvas edges, the created characters are nearly flat, exuding an emotion of eager improvisation. Adam's artistic style is rooted in primitive Pop Art, drawing inspiration from personal experiences and family emotions. His works radiate purity, with profound autobiographical undertones, offering audiences an immersive journey filled with love and healing.

We look forward to your visit to embark on the healing journey presented by Adam Handler.
