Artist Bio

Chang Yun Min

Chang Yun Ming is a well-known Taiwanese artist. During his early art career, ink painting, has brought him a great reputation and numerous collectors and art lovers. However, he has changed his material for making art owing to getting a different idea to see art. He is exploring the inner spirit and oriental culture rather than the external beauty of the object for his painting, sometimes it’s also revealing childlike and innocent figures with a pure joy. On the other, it is a peak of his art career that exudes his life experience, profoundly knowledge and spiritual beauty. He places it significant of the combination between the texture and line, as well as expressing his art freely and infinity. One of the most important elements of Chang’s art is symbol, which is also like the cell of life for his art. He has found the rhythm and emotion through his innovative sighs.

Chang Yun Ming 張韻明

國立台灣藝大美術系畢業。USA Lindenwood大學藝術碩士。

高雄彌陀人,台灣國立藝專畢業後專心從事於水墨畫的創作達三十餘年。1999年又前往美國密蘇里州Lindenwood大學進修藝術創作碩士,專攻油畫。此後他將水墨書法的經驗,融入東方元素與西方色彩鮮麗的油畫實驗,形成一股「墨韻」與「色彩」交織的清新風貌。也是當今水墨畫跨越西洋畫與的第一位非凡成就畫家。

張韻明的繪畫內容,充滿畫家內心對土地的濃厚感情。之後伴隨他經歷國外的生活與遊歷,畫作內容亦趨更加豐富多元,筆觸揮灑更淋漓。作品中處處可見水墨風情與異國風趣之融合,散發出饒具趣味並充滿浪漫詩意的別致風格。

張韻明善於應用自然界的符碼,他的用色習慣是水墨概念的延伸,也就是說他的顏色變化原則是「明度」的關係,而不是「調性」的差異,與一些西洋畫家用黑色的方式和技法是大不相同的。他的作品融合了抽象主義與結構主義的精神, 同時具備浪漫主義的人文關照。
