After Singapore painter Ruben Pang made his mark in Milan with a group show last November with Italian gallery Primo Marella, he is now holding a solo exhibition in Lugano, Switzerland, this month.

The choice of Europe for Pang's international solo debut comes amid buzz already building there for the artist.

At the group show in November, called Deep S.E.A - Contemporary Art from South East Asia, three of Pang's paintings sold even before it opened.

His new solo show consists of three sculptures - the first time he has exhibited the genre - together with nine new paintings. Pang describes the paintings as "an attempt to bring a saturated light/digital visual effects/dream sequences/glitches into oil paint".
