Wang Wei Chiuan


Frustrations are inevitable in life, but we can still drift along our heart in adversity.

With insights, the artist perceives the experience and outlines of the driftwoods.

With skills, the artist combines pieces of beautiful stories into truth.

In the simple, rustic works, we see the beauty of an epiphany that covers all directions, and the embodiment of a preserving transformation.

There is an old saying in Taiwan: “Sweet potato rots in earth to let its leaves pass on for generations.” With the heart of a Taiwanese, Wei-Chiuan Wang uses local materials, creates artworks basing on eco-friendly, natural, and simple elements, and practices his will of avoiding harming the Earth. Bringing no damage to any tree or bush, the artist creates a new form of environmental art.

“A decayed wood can turn into artworks with a suitable carving method,” said Wang. Our driftwoods friends travelled alone through tides and seasons, meeting us again in a new form that we have never imagined before. Besides their amazing texture and outline, driftwoods also embed rich spirits, telling us that “our past has passed; we seize the moment and demonstrate the beauty of ‘never giving up’.”

Making life into art, and art into life, Wang grants driftwoods new lives in a form of long-lasting copper carving; this is his commitment, duty, and responsibility to the driftwoods. With these works, he appeals to us: “We only have one Earth; we need to protect it with love and care.”
