Born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 1981, Huang Yi-Sheng graduated from the Department of Fine Arts at National Taiwan Normal University with a specialization in Western Painting. Having worked on realistic painting for many years, Huang is best known for his delicate expression as well as a gentle metaphoric narrative style. Throughout his artistic practice, Huang has expected that his works can provide a spiritual consolation. It is not his intention to demonstrate the skillful technique in his paintings or to create the comfortable atmosphere through the images painted with various pinks. Instead, he believes that art-making should stir the space of imagination which used to be motionless but yet extensive, encouraging viewers to realize that they can either meditate or take a break in this peaceful and undisturbed land.
In 2016 and 2012, he held solo exhibitions named “Wrapping Absurdity” and “When the Door Opens” at Liang Gallery. Huang’s works have been exhibited in Osaka, Hong Kong, London, Shanghai, and Taiwan. His paintings have been collected by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, the Bureau of Cultural Affairs of Kaohsiung City Government, Bamboo Curtain Studio, the Taiwan National Exhibition Committee of Arts. He currently lives and works in Taoyuan, Taiwan.
