CHUNG Chia-Chun

Overview

CHUNG Chia-Chun (b. 1992), who graduated from the Department of Fine Arts of Tunghai University, is adept at combining different painting styles on paper. He uses acrylic, crayon, charcoal, and other mixed media to present different types of space in his artworks, juxtaposing the cubist-style figure sketches as his iconic symbol with surrealistic pattern layouts and the flatness of minimalistic hard-edge colored blocks. Under academic training for various styles and techniques, CHUNG Chia-Chun depicts the subject, object, symbols, and background elements utilizing various characteristics of different media to present a multi-dimensional visual space. When the artist is choosing the medium, he often transfers his understanding of materiality from the medium to his painting performance. The alienated three-dimensional effect subject (face) in grey scale is portrayed by the fragile charcoal; the lively and brisk object (world) with multiple high saturation colors is flat-coated by acrylic colors, and the emotional mental state is presented by graffiti drawings using coarse crayon particles.
