In Chinatown… Tierra del Sol Gallery presents “Tonmoy Khan: Everything,”Khan’s first solo exhibition. An opening art party was held on Saturday, January 14, 2023, and the public can view the show through March 4, 2023.
Everything embodies Khan’s feelings, his practice and his commitment to making visual language. He uses various media to illustrate his flora and fauna inspired images, including pencil, oil pastels and markers, the combination of these creates vibrant color, texture and depth. His work tells important stories of how he sees and interprets the world around him.
Khan immigrated from Bangladesh in 2011 and joined Tierra’s Studio Art Program in 2019. Khan uses tape to delineate rich geometric watercolor patterns that frame subjects including elaborately potted plants and other still life. Everything also includes surreal imagery depicting hands, flowers, insects, Pokemon and everything in between. Khan implores what he calls his “Secret Imagination” to work through both the stress of living so far from home and the pleasure in his deep connections to his friends, family and ideas that are often expressed in his surrealist works.
