CHEN, Chi-hao (1978 -, from Taiwan)
Artist CHEN, born in 1978, originally from Taipei, Taiwan.
Chen is a Chinese painting artist, known especially for the stylized decorative qualities of his ink painting, inspired by Mr Wu, Shi-wei, one of well-known art educators of Taiwan, at his early age.
Chen is a brilliant artist. He has been generating his own individual style of Zen art, since his graduate program of Fine Arts, in Chinese Culture University, Taiwan. Chen’s first solo exhibition was in 2003; his ink painting – Three Walls – was collected by the University of Museum of Hwa Kang, Taipei. Following that, he has participated numerous solo and group exhibitions, as well as invited exhibitions, such as at the Taitung Chihpen Hotel Royal (2005), Municipal Tainan Cultural Center (2008), Mingzong Calligraphy Art Museum (2009), the Soochow University, Taipei (2011), Zona Fenix art place (2013), the Hui-Fang-Tang Art Gallery (2017), and the Yue-Ming Teahouse (2018) respectively, throughout typical art institutions and private centers of Taiwan. Besides, Chen’s series of ink works – Pot Flowers Art – received art collectors’ frequent attention during the ASIA CONTEMPORARY ART 2018, Hong Kong.
Chen’s art is founded on Chinese aesthetics. His works are also strongly influenced by Chinese traditional painting theory. The use of ink colors, the expression of spacial arrangement, and different strokes of the Chinese brush, are all symbolically portrayed by his own way on the entire composition of the works. Recently, Chen has addicted to botanical gardens, especially with little plants. The gardens stimulate Chen to do further study of Chinese ink and featured strokes, as well as his artistic practice of Zen art.
Today, Chen’s artwork is renowned for his cursive script like depictions. The series of An Oasis of My Housetop, at this exhibition, is meant to make people think, to observe nature, to care and to appreciate the representation of nature, though his art. 房號：1916
