Address:No. 49 Nanhai Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei, Taiwan
To celebrate Taiwanese visual artist Yu Ming-lung's (游明龍) three-decade-long career, the National Museum of History will host an exhibition titled "My Generation, My Design” from April 12 through May 4 in Taipei City.
Born in 1957, Yu is a stout promoter of "Taiwan impressions” and "Taiwanese flavors.” His style combines both his understanding and applications of local traditions and world trends. Using concepts and creations inspired by Taiwan's folk culture in his design art, Yu's modern designs have great commercial appeal on the global market.
Yu believes that successful designs, despite their role in marketing and contributions to the economy, cannot be superficial. In his view, their success is rooted in culture and public aesthetics; therefore, creativity and design always stem from caring about local culture and life.
Yu's own designs often feature Chinese characters and elements from Taiwan's religious rituals and folk beliefs. For an eyeful of his iconic works, please visit "My Generation, My Design,” which is arranged in three sections to display Yu's poster art, commercial designs, and creative products.
