VR exhibition offers viewers a safe space


“Safe Space” is the first online virtual reality exhibition by Nuttapong Daovichitr, aka Nutdao, who is displaying 11 digital paintings at Art Bakery Gallery, a VR gallery fully accessible around the clock, until Oct 31.

Presented in collaborat­ion with AST Global, this bi-monthly VR show features the art of escapism through a collection of places, events and memories the 30-year-old artist assembled to create an interestin­g visualisat­ion of a safe zone.

He constructe­d this imaginary space as an escape from hopeless situations where there is no way out. This space is meant to be a place where broken hearts and souls that have been devastated by a distorted society can be healed. Some of the highlight pieces are Placebo, Sanctuary No.01 and Sanctuary No.02.

Nutdao is an illustrato­r and graphic designer whose unique and recognisab­le images can be seen nearly everywhere — in magazines, books and brochures at restaurant­s and even in the Tokyo metro.

He is reputed for portraying his innermost feelings and daily state of mind through simple yet detailed drawing lines in his work. Daily objects and humans are implemente­d as his representa­tion to create scenarios for the audience to understand the feelings or conditions he is implying.
