Over the Influence is proud to announce the debut solo exhibition Passenger: To Falling Star from Taiwanese painter Chen Wei Ting at the Bangkok gallery space.
Wei -Ting Chen’s works are mostly paintings with acrylic and oil pastel, often accompanied by poems that correspond to the visual parts and provide a hint. He always thinks that his works are showing the differences between children and adults. He also works with different medias, such as video art, performance, and sculpture.
“If personal experience can reflect itself, I think drawing and writing are a kind of slice of self”, he said. The artist displays his own poems as part of exhibition “Passenger: To Falling Star”, together with a new collection of paintings that capture the innocence and mystery of life as seen through a moody schema of blues and purples punctuated by golden rays of yellow and orange.
Chen Wei Ting
Wei-Ting Chen was born 1991 in Tainan, Taiwan. He graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts with a Master’s degree in Global Art Practice. He spent his childhood on child books, and he liked to draw with poem. 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. For Chen, he thinks that the writing is a slice of life, and writing poems has become another way of making a drawing.
