Yang Mao-Lin Biography

Yang Mao-Lin graduated from the Chinese Culture University's Department of Fine Arts in 1979. He was the first director and a founding member of the Taipei Painting School in 1985. His work spans multiple genres, including painting, computer animation, installation, and sculpture. Yang explores his native Taiwan by juxtaposing historical space-times, and investigating the ways in which a cultural phenomenon has derived from the transpiring vibrant vitality and vivacious fascination of colonial hybridization. Yang reflects upon various unexpected cultural characteristics of Taiwan in an open-minded and humorous manner, though he criticizes the long-term influences of Japanese and American culture on Taiwanese society.
