Vertical Gallery is very proud to present “Sorry I can’t talk right now”, the first USA solo show from Thai artist 2CHOEY. The exhibition is July 8 – 29, 2023 with an opening day reception on Saturday July 8, noon-5pm.

“Sorry I can’t talk right now” addresses situations in life that may be dangerous, unsafe, or uncomfortable. Known for painting hands as the characters faces, this show explores the artist having the characters use hand signs when they cannot use sound. The theme of the work follows his critical, politically neutral outlook on society.

2CHOEY is a Bangkok based self-taught artist. With a background is in Urban Architecture, 2CHOEY was an art director in an ad agency. He soon started selling paintings and realized he enjoyed painting more than working in advertising. 2CHOEY’s signature characters, ‘Fingies’, reinterprets pop culture icons within the framework of hands, fists and fingers in his playful and very unique style.

While living and working in Melbourne, Australia a few years ago, his colorful pop-art inspired work was an instant hit within the Melbourne art scene. His work has featured in many publications, including the National Geographic, Lürzer’s Archive, Designboom, and Ads of the world. His work has been shown in Taipei, Miami, Berlin, Hong Kong, Oslo, Bangkok, Chicago and Melbourne.

2CHOEY’s has participated in several group shows at Vertical Gallery, and this is his first solo show in the United States.
