Wei Ting Chen

Multidisciplinary artist Wei Ting Chen was born in Taiwan and is based in Tokyo. His award-winning, varied practice includes video art, performance and sculpture, along with paintings using acrylic and oil pastel, which are often accompanied by poems that correspond to the visual parts of a piece. Chen notes: “If personal experience can reflect itself, I think drawing and writing are a kind of slice of self. Instinct drives me to paint and write about fragments of my childhood – like words and poems in my images – figurative but present.”
