100 Happiness

In this exhibition, Undo presents his latest work, 100 Happiness, a series of daily drawings exploring the search for happiness. Using Instagram as a canvas to display his works, Undo emphasizes today’s need for instant gratification. Undo wants to use his works as a medium to arouse emotions in audiences, to connect with people, and to raise questions about true happiness in this information-polluted era. Happiness coexists with unhappiness; they are interrelated and interdependent, like Yin and Yang. Therefore, Undo's works in this exhibition depict a series of unhappy faces juxtaposed with happy faces. “I like to include the unhappy face in my work not only to create tension and contrast but also to remind others that life can be miserable sometimes. It would be delusional if the works just showcased happy faces. We will definitely overlook true happiness if we do not embrace the opposite side of it. You need to go through the unhappy moments in your life to really unearth the meaning of happiness.” – Undo
