奥斯卡 OSCAR TSAI ︱Taipei(Taiwan)

 

I live and work as an illustrator in a personal studio in Taipei. I started painting in 2011 because of a heart-broken accident. Initially, I just drew something to release sorrow. I found there was so much fun in painting. I started posting works on the web and then received some positive feedbacks. I enjoy being a director on paper, which tell good stories and create something inspiring. As a result, I chose to be an illustrator, an artist, in spite I studied information management in university.

 

My first solo exhibition was in Jan/2013, in a café, which exhibited 23 works. As time goes by, not just painting skills made progress, but the thought toward art also gradually changed. What is the painting for? What I pursue actually? I slowly found my answer in the works. In the beginning of October 2014, I completed the military service of 11 months, and also help save lives in thrilling Kaohsiung gas explosion disaster during the service. In those 11 months, the creation was almost shut down, and only a few pieces of art works were created. But after 11 months of precipitation, I understood what actually I wanted - the depth of work and thickness of life. What will I leave after death? I will try to record this time and this world by my works. Now I am working on a project called "The Planet", and Iceland is also the first stop of this project.
