Hsi Chun Huang (1985) was born in Taipei, Taiwan.
After getting an art degree at the National Taiwan University of Arts, Hsi Chun chose Europe as a starting point to begin his full-time creation in 2013. He loves to observe and portray the moments that touch him in his daily life, obsessed with just saving bits of memories, of moments in time.
In 2014, he headed to Melbourne and started his life as a street artist and he also started actively participating in art activities locally, including being a member of Art Studio, Artist Market, Melbourne Arts Club group exhibitions and the Melbourne Fringe Festival ’14 street event. Moreover, in a competition with thousands of other artists, he was selected as one of the artists whose art pieces were to be exhibited in the Brunswick Street Gallery.
Hsi Chun's meticulous strokes conjure his delicate senses alive, to create his works with qualities of warmth and beautiful sense of light, environment. These everyday sceneries become vibrant under his paintbrush, and create an intimacy that engages the audiences to enjoy a world of imagination in their own perspectives. Or when they read his comments of those moments, they can experience and feel his emotions of regrets, joy, anger, and excitement...
“ To me, these precious moments that I wish to capture are not the ones that will remind people of the so- called "beautiful sceneries” at their first sight... they are the moments of life, memories, and the people who I met that I wish to keep forever. It's included everything I feel and create the work base on my feeling, be honest with myself. All my works are part of me. ” - Hsi Chun Huang
