Chen Wei Ting
Wei Ting Chen was born in Tainan, Taiwan in 1991. He spent his childhood on cartooning, and he liked to draw characters. In Fu Jen University, he majored in Chinese Literature and started to write poems. He read Roland L. Bachmann's concept of fragment. Roland's work is composed of fragments. When readers read his works, they need to put together his thoughts. For Chen, he thinks that the writing is a slice of life, and writing poems has become another way of making a drawing.
His works are mostly paintings with acrylic paints, often accompanied by poems that correspond to the visual parts and provide a complete sense of a story. He also works with different media, such as video art, action art, and sculpture. He attended Nuit Blanche Taipei in 2017, an art event with lots of performance. Some works he created is now in the collection of Lih-pao Cultural Arts Foundation. He always thinks that his works are showing the differences between children and adults.
In order to seek for more opportunities for exchange with different artists and starting new projects, he currently studies in the Global Art Practice program at Tokyo University of the Arts and lives and works in Tokyo.
