Born 1982 in Taipei, Candy Bird’s artworks first appeared as graffiti, voicing those of urbanism and marginalization. Since 2010, he has started to convey stories and views unattended by the mainstream media as well as his observations during participation in social protests, making attempts to demonstrate his practice of art for society’s sake. Weaving existing objects and their environment into historical contexts has become his signature. In recent years, Candy Bird has also taken an initiative to incorporate writings and interdisciplinary collaborations into his works, shifting and interlacing the stances of subjects throughout his art-making process, as to seek for deconstructing traditional graffiti and street art. Through this way, he hopes to inspire viewers to notice the life traces of others and to construct a dialogue with their own life experiences.
