Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers organised this exhibition by Indonesia’s foremost expressionist painter, cultural thinker, art critic and educator, Popo Iskandar in collaboration with Griya Seni Popo Iskandar, Bandung, Indonesia.

The collection consists of a comprehensive oeuvre of over 50 artworks spanning decades of Popo Iskandar’s creative years showcasing his distinctive themes of cat, leopard, rooster and other explorations including landscape, figurative and abstract works to encapsulate his expressionist journey.

Popo Iskandar’s Expressions is a first solo show for the artist albeit posthumously in Kuala Lumpur.

Below are some of my favourite paintings from the show. The 2 leopards and the moon, the rooster and the white cat with the sun
