Art Taichung 2023
Highlight of the exhibition—Spanish artist Oton’s new pieces
Artist Oton excels at depicting iconic symbols in pop culture with an innovative perspective. He draws freely on cartoon characters like Mickey mouse much like a child. The line gracefully across the paper stroke by stroke, bringing each stroke to life vividly and clearly. Simultaneously creating satirical and mocking imagines to provoke contemplation among viewers. This constitutes the core mechanism of Oton’s creative process—an enjoyable job, a pure and innocent picture, free from rules, everything on the same level.
Nicolas Romero’s solo exhibition proceed in parallel
Nicolas Romero born in 1985 in Argentina. He started his art career 20 years ago by creating graffiti on the street of his hometown Buenos Aires, during a prolonged period of military dictatorship lasting eight years. Nicolas expresses his demand for personal liberty through street art. From soft drink bottles to religious periodicals, political symbol, iconic idol and even seemingly simple item like fruits and vegetables can serve as a bridge for him to comment on complex reality. Simultaneously, TING TING Art Space will invite artist himself to the venue of his first solo exhibition in Taiwan, which will proceed in parallel.
