10 artworks / 39 exhibition

Wang, Wen-Chih was born in 1959 in Chiayi, Taiwan. He represented Taiwan at the 2001 Venice Biennale and has been behind a number of major public art projects. His work has been exhibited in Asia (Taiwan, Japan), Europe (France, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic), America (United States, Canada) and Australia.

His oeuvre lies in Asia, the land from which he sprang, for art is always an extension of the reasoning behind where it was created. Bamboo is of vital importance in Wen-Chih Wang’s works, and he skillfully exploits its flexibility and strength as well as its graphic qualities. A self-proclaimed craftsman who “puts what he knows how to do into contemporary art”, Wang Wen-Chih creates works at the intersection of painting, landscape design, architecture and sculpture. With their succession of changing viewpoints out onto the surrounding environment, they both appeal to and surprise the spectator.
