This time, Art Kaohsiung will be presenting two major themes. One is the "Contemporary Ink Painting Collection," carefully curated by Yao Te Huang. ART KAOHSIUNG will present works from multiple contemporary ink painting artists simultaneously to display the expressionism of ink paintings. On the other hand, Richard H. K. Chang, the founder of Formosa Art Fair, spearheads the presentation of the second theme with the “Southeast Asian Contemporary Art Exhibition.” Additionally, Artdoor Gallery Taipei, Dona Art, Galerie Grand Siècle, and Vin Gallery from Vietnam will join forces to help familiarize audiences with the Southeast Asian art that is quickly rising in popularity.
The International Art Forum also invited Park Woo Hong, president of the Galleries Association of Korea, and Japanese collector Daisuke Miyatsu, to share their love for art collections and show what it is like to hold large-scale art exhibitions.
In artist Chi Wu’s works, “Dream Beast” and “Birdman” are core elements that often take the stage, representing the risk of dreams and freedom, respectively. Wu’s works are colorful and dreamy, with strong imaginative and fantastical themes, as seen in In The World.
