About the Exhibition
The collection of images in “Memories Museum” tracks the overall trajectory of Edo’s self-described art style, Infinite Inception Art. Edo has chosen twenty of his favorite pieces from his past collections, dating back to his first exhibition in 2015, to display together in this showcase. Each work is a complex reflection of a moment in his artistic practice; his kaleidoscopic style unites a multitude of images, inviting the viewer to look closer and see what they can find. Edo’s work can’t be understood in a single viewing; rather, each visit reveals something new, something different, something infinite.
