The Fun Year Art Gallery (凡亞藝術空間) from Taiwan will join the Los Angeles Art Show, the largest fair of its kind on the West Coast, for the second time from Jan. 10 through 14 with a stellar lineup of three unique artists.
Based in Taichung, the art gallery has recently been expanding the market frontiers of Taiwan art by collaborating with foreign art galleries as well as participating in international art fairs.
Under the theme "Introspection - Taiwan Expression,” the gallery has curated a selection by painters Tsai Cheng-i (蔡正一), Liao Pen-shen (廖本生), and Tai Ming-te (戴明德) to present their unique styles and perspectives at the LA fair.
Born in 1954, Tsai is an oil painter whose works reinterpret objects using semi-abstract forms and subjective colors. Tsai has won several artistic accolades, including two Tai Yang Art Exhibition bronze awards.
Born in 1959, Liao is a Taichung-based painter and fine arts teacher who seeks to integrate ancient Chinese art forms and philosophy with painting to express an inner spirit of tranquility. He believes that an artist has to be willing to venture and think outside of box to establish his or her own style.
Born in 1960, Tai is a Chiayi-based fine arts teacher whose artworks are known for a whimsical style achieved by incorporating symbols and totems. He creates an imaginative world by illustrating the daily moments he has captured to express his inner thoughts and comments on the world.
The exhibition will offer insights on Taiwanese culture as well as convey the concern and respect held by the three distinguished artists for the society, environment, and people of Taiwan.
Established in 1995, the LA Art Show is one of the oldest and largest international art fairs in the U.S. Hosted by the Los Angeles Convention Center, the annual fair offers exhibitions, forums, and performances to showcase classic aesthetics as well as contemporary trends.
Each year, it draws roughly 70,000 buyers, agents, curators, and artists from all over the world. More than 100 art galleries from a total of eighteen countries will participate in the fair this year.
