Until Jun 19: ‘What Have You Seen, Where Have You Been?’


Brasston recently started showcasing a selection of artworks from UK-born designer and artist Toros Cangar that will be available for purchase for a limited time only. As a lover and enthusiast for the creative industry, Cangar spends the majority of his time developing and designing products. But outside of office hours, he dedicates his free time to create a series of small 30x30 centimeter canvas paintings. Suitable for home, office, shelf, or window sill, the collection of minimal art pieces, named ‘what have you seen, where have you been?,’ reflect the simple things in life.

Until Jun 19. Brasston.
