Shih Yung Chun was born in Taipei, Taiwan in 1978. He graduated from National Taiwan University of Arts in 2003.
Shih’s paintings mostly come from scenes of everyday life as the main theme, however, he evolutes from hundreds of photos to the narrative content. That’s why in those familiar scene, he always deliberately makes alienated and strange change, let people feel astonishing, but can not help curiousity for further exploring the truth.
Shih Yung Chun has participated in numerous exhibitions and art fairs and had his first solo exhibition in the prestige representing young emerging artist Line Gallery, Beijing. He was also one of the art award winners of Geisai Taiwan 2011.
Here’s a collage background I had started up with one of Ralph’s photos and a few of mine from around NYC (and a Philly train yard… don’t tell Ralph hah). This isn’t part of his new short or anything, but was of course inspired by his films. It was one of the things he was looking at early in the making of his short, but he has since gone pure Ralph by putting his own city collages and paintings in the background… which is of course the best way to go.
Beautiful Bakshi inspired stuff, Chris!
