LIN WEI-HSIANG


Lin Wei-Hsiang was born in Hsinchu, Taiwan in 1983. In 2009, he graduated from the Graduate Institute of Fine Arts and Crafts Education at the National Hsinchu University of Education. His inspiration comes from the natural sceneries, though unlike the Realists’ landscape paintings, his paintings are more impressionistic and abstract, emphasizing inherent spirituality rather than extrinsic imitation. In his paintings one can feel the movement of clouds or moist humid air. He portrays his own ethereal inner world and illusory landscapes that cannot be expressed in words. In 2005, Lin received Professor Tze-Fan Lee Creative Award, in 2004 was selected for Young Artist Collection, received an award for excellence in National Student Art Exhibition and honorable mention in Nanying Art Exhibition. His works have been collected by the Taiwan Art Bank, the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, and the National Chiao Tung University Arts Center.
