"Hung Yi's Wonderland,” an exhibition of 42 large-scale sculptures, will spread across the outdoor plaza of the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts from Dec. 26 through Feb. 14, 2016.
The art installation will present Hung Yi's (洪易) creation of whimsical sculptures from the past three years. Visitors will be able to enjoy animal- and plant-looking steel works that are given life by Hung with bold colors and Chinese cultural motifs.
Hung began his career as an artist in 2000 after his works were selected for an exhibition at Art Stock 20 based in Taichung. Emerging as an installation artist, Hung has taken inspiration from everyday life and traditional culture to create contemporary art. Since his breakthrough in Taichung, Hung's sculptures has been showcased at exhibitions in Taiwan and overseas, making him an acclaimed contemporary artist today.
The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts will be decorated with Hung's colorful sculptures spreading across the museum lobby and outdoor area. To celebrate the Chinese New Year, additional festive events will be held on Feb. 9, 2016 to usher forth the Year of the Monkey.
