Wu Chien-Yi (b. 1987-)

Born in Taichung, Taiwan, Wu Chien-Yi specialises in collage art and mixed media installations. She received her M.F.A degree from the Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts in Tainan National University of the Arts in year 2014. She participated in “Taipei Artist Village-2017 Season 2 Residency Artists Exhibition” and also exhibited at Taipei Fine Arts Museum. Large installations of “5100 Mini Store” series are created for Shanghai shopping complex and also another window grilles artwork at National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts during 2016 Taiwan Biennial.


Known as the winner of 2012 The Arising Artist Award of New Taipei City for her ‘5100 Mini Store Project’, Chien-Yi is also on the finalist of ‘The 13th Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award’ in 2015, the reputable ‘Taipei Arts Awards’ in 2011 as well as 2010 Kaohsiung Awards. She has also been invited to exhibit in numerous exhibitions, among which are the 2014 MT Expo and the 2012 Taiwan Biennial.


Wu Chien-Yi’s art is the after product of various approaches regarding keen observations and experiments. Having paper tape as the medium of expression, Chien-Yi reintroduces the familiar objects around us in a new light. The artist recaptures the consumption-driven economy and the soaring growth of e-commerce today to reveal a truthful insight of our era through her seemingly unfocused collage art. Her innovative approach continues to bring forth the distance between a truer reality and the world we are in.
