The Contemporary Taiwan Painting & Sculpture Exhibition was held recently at the Πνευματικό Κέντρο in downtown Athens from September 19th to 30th, 2011.
Ten artists from Taiwan had their paintings/sculptures/calligraphy exhibited, their names are:
Bu Zi 卜兹, Chen Yan-Shuoh 陳彥碩, Hsieh Mei-Ching 謝美卿, Hsu Chih-Neng 徐至能, Lee Wuh-Kuen 李戊崑, Lee Yih-Hong 李義弘, Lu Shu-Chen 吕淑珍, Tao Kang 陶綱, Tao Wei 陶韡, Wu Chi-Tao 吳継濤. Since it was not possible to get to know all of them and their work in a short visit, so I tried to link up whatever I could find in the internet that described the artists and their work. If you have any other links for any other artists, please leave the link in the comment area.
I attended the opening day ceremony and would like to share with readers some of the photos taken on that day. Hopefully through this photo presentation people will be able to see the hi-lights of the exhibition and appreciate the creativity of some contemporary Taiwanese artists.
The current Taiwan Representative in Greece, Elizabeth Chu 朱玉鳯, had her own paintings exhibited last year and her teacher Lee Yih-Hong 李義弘, is one among the 10 artists in this group.
I thank the artist Lee Wuh-Kuen 李戊崑, who wrote down the Chinese names of all the artists for me as there were no such information available in the exhibit (I assume this info was omitted because most visitors are Greeks and they wouldn't know the artists' names written in Chinese characters). Mr. Lee also gave a short speech on behalf of all the artists in the opening ceremony. A search on the internet reveals that he holds a master's degree and has some publication called 以平準機制輔助藝術交易市場之研究 (A study on the arts trading market supported by the mechanism of equalization) in the Journal of National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (No. 68) in the 4th month of the year 2007.
