    International Art Feast, Gathering 468 Artists from 74 Countries

    Asia’s iconic art fair, Art Revolution Taipei (A.R.T.), runs April 26~29 at Taipei World Trade Center, Hall 3, this year. It has brought 468 artists from 74 countries to participate in displaying nearly 4,000 cultural-distinctive and local-characteristic artworks.


    The A.R.T., inaugurated in 2011, is curated with a trend-leading concept, that is, it places the artists front and center, with each booth designed as the artist’s solo exhibition. Over these years, it has successfully established a platform for Taiwan artists to dialogue with the international artists, and more significantly, a world stage for every artist to demonstrate his/her talents and creativities.

    As usual, X-Power Gallery leads its represented artists to participate in this international art fair this year. Focusing on A.R.T.’s annual exhibiting theme, “The soul tattooed with art,” these artists showcase their latest creations as follows:


     

    Lee Sun-Don

    Professor Lee Sun-Don presents two series this year. “The Clear Mirror World” takes the mirror-finished stainless steel as the canvas. The reflectivity of the clear mirror takes the light and images in front onto the “canvas,” creating an interesting intersection of presence and penetrability, dimensions and boundary, reflection (illusion, fiction) and reality. What is more interesting, when standing before it, the viewer becomes part of the artwork – a beautiful concept of infusing the viewer with the creation.

    The other series, “The Ultimate Origins,” is to portray the idea that “emptiness” is not nothing as we know it but an existence that will give rise to something. Here Professor Lee uses the sheet music of his own composition of violin concerto to make the sound, which is supposedly unseen, into perceivable. He furthermore uses totemic illustrations to add Zen interests to the work as a whole.

    MSLL

    Composed of MANIHOO, Singway, Ling Ling and Luna, MSLL is an art quartet famous for their talented presentation of the flow of paint. Their newly creation, “Necessary • Bodhi,” employs the leaves of the direct descendant of the Bodhi tree under which the founder of Buddhism, Sakyamuni, attained enlightenment. Creating with the fallen leaf from this tree beautifully manifests a Zen life philosophy, that is, every being, whatever floating cloud or flowing water, can be an inspiration for awakening. It manifests also MSLL’s concern for environment – to creatively turn the so-called “trash” into food for thought.

    LunaSaSa

    A brand-new art duo composed of Luna and Small Sa. They debuted with “The World,” a series featuring the 20 main stars of the Chinese astrology of Ziwei Doushu. Each star has its characteristics based upon which LunaSaSa design the coordinating figure and divine creature of the concerning painting.

    Ling Ling

    For 2019, Ling Ling brings to us “The Treasure Bowl,” whereby the butterfly (a symbol of fortune), lotus (an icon for flourishing), and antique coins all together make up the dimensional treasure bowl. She believes that an idea can be expressed in different forms and with different media.

    Yachi Lai

    Yachi’s newest series, ”The Taste of the Wonder World,” is inspired by Chinese culinary art, especially its triple emphasis on color-flavor-taste and the auspicious naming of the cuisine. With this series, she wishes to send her best wishes to all.

    GOGO YU

    For 2019, GoGo creates with “facing life’s turning points” as her painting motif. She explores her deep innermost and depicts the reality of survival of the fittest. She believes that hidden within our inner self, there always exists a super-magical being guarding us all the time.

    Small Sa

    Small Sa likes to use arch lines and geometric shapes to create her artwork. An oversized big hand is, especially, her signature — she believes that everyone needs to be cared for and that is her way of bringing guardianship and light of life to the viewers. Characterized with a refreshing caricature style, her artwork emanates youthful vitality and resonates as musical notes.
