Based in Taiwan, Gin Huang Gallery specialises in presenting the burgeoning field of Trend Art; a diverse, friendly, and approachable contemporary cousin of pop art closely aligned with popular culture.Read More
Gin Huang Gallery was established in Taipei’s gallery-rich Neihu District in 2016 by its eponymous owner, director and curator—a gallerist with over a decade’s prior experience in established Taiwanese and Chinese galleries. While maintaining a presence in Taipei, Gin Huang Gallery is now based in the Wuqi district of Taichung city.
Integrating its physical programmes with mass exposure on online social and art platforms the gallery’s crossover strategy aims to create a friendly and accessible environment for new artists and collectors to enter the market.
Gin Huang Gallery Artists
Specialising in a diverse field, Gin Huang Gallery works presents the work of an international roster of influential and emerging artists whose work intrinsically connects to popular culture in an accessible fashion.
This includes several internationally familiar names such as Japanese pop art titans Takashi Murakami and Yayoi Kusama, popular New York street artist and designer KAWS, Sicilian sculptor Arturo Di Modica, best known for his Iconic wall street bull, and American graffitist turned modern artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
The gallery also represents the next generation of established and rapidly emerging Trend artists. Among them, artists like British painter George Morton-Clark, whose work combines cartoons and other popular cartoons with street-art styles and abstract painting; Anime-oriented protégé of Murakami, MR; Russian painter Anna Berezovskaya whose style of surreal figurative painting is described as ‘poetic realism’; ‘b-boy’ hip hop star turned-sculptor of life-size break-dancing-inspired figures, Taku Obata; self-taught Polish street artist of expressive portraits, Igor Dobrowlski, and German artist Van Ray, whose urban art offer public critiques of the contemporary society.
Pushing beyond pop culture reference some of Gin Huang Gallery’s artists to create unique illusions of the familiar such as New Zealand sculptor Ben Young’s, three-dimensional, laminated float glass concrete and metal sub-aquatic terrains; or the oil paintings of Spanish artist Antonio Santin and Na Wei from China which present intricate illusions of familiar cultural items such as textiles.

Cross-promoting across online and offline platforms, Gin Huang Gallery holds significant solo and group exhibitions for its artists both in the physical gallery space and online.
