Art Revolution Taipei, A.R.T. 2014
Comments To A.R.T. 2014 From Artists And Guests
Alfonso Cuñado Rodríguez (Spain)
Collectors in Taiwan are fond of my works with great and warm responses. After I returned from A.R.T. last year, I couldn’t help but thinking about the warm hospitality I received in Taiwan, as well as the happenings and exhibition in Taipei. I did feel like to rent a studio in Taipei and to live in Taiwan. I really appreciate the organization and arrangements from A.R.T. with very diligent staff. I like Taiwan very much. People in Taiwan are polite and friendly. I’m happy to interact with collectors and viewers as well.
Cathy Pitts (U.S.A.)
This year is my third time to participate the A.R.T., the theme of my paintings is the diamond as usual, but integrating with different background. Through reflection of light, every facet would reflect differently the surrounding and colors, just like creating dreams. Light brings hopes for people, and I wish to convey the happy and positive energies to viewers via canvas. A.R.T. is just great, and I’m honored to represent the exhibition on behalf of U.S.A., to exchange with artists from different countries. Moreover, I met a great number of viewers, which enhanced me to understand more about people, artists, culture and market preference in Taiwan. Staff is so kind to artists, as warm as families, which made me feel at home and happy.
The criteria set by A.R.T. are high, and it’s even higher this year, which is very important. It’s amazing to witness the crowd converging for the VIP Preview. In general, A.R.T. has made progress this year, compared to last year.
All I think of A.R.T. is positive and beautiful, 110% perfect! During the process from registration, correspondences, check-in to exhibition, every detail is perfect. All I want to is “Thank you!”
The particular feature about A.R.T. is the interaction between artists and viewers. One buys a painting because s/he likes it, which is totally different from those who invest in paintings for re-sale. The friendship derived from paintings is very important to artists. This is the most valuable characteristic to be carried on.
This is my first time to exhibit in Asia. According to my experience in this exhibition, supports from the organizer to artists, efforts in promotion, and concerns about every artist’s sales, all in all was excellent. Another special thing which didn’t happen to my previous exhibitions in U.S.A. or Europe was the chance to express my concerns to directors. It’s very important.
Chathuranga Biyagama(Sri Lanka)
The Art Revolution Taipei is an excellent, well-organized event! SUPER! I hope next time I can have bigger booth to exhibit more paintings. It’s not easy to travel such a long way to come to Taiwan from Sri Lanka. A rare opportunity for me indeed, everything here is beyond my imagination, also including learning something different as well to get inspirations from exchanges. People in Taiwan are really friendly.
It’s my first time to exhibit in Taiwan with my boyfriend and manager Nick Vintskevich, also our first trip to Asia and Taipei. There are beautiful skyscrapers, but something more beautiful is local people’s kindness and friendliness. To exhibit at A.R.T. is one of the best experiences I even have. Not just at the venue, there are contemporary sculptures and artworks on streets. It shows the degree people care and admire arts. It’s very motivating as well as inspiring for me to be granted the honor of Prize Gold last year for the Juried Competition. People in Taiwan support me with compliments on my paintings, which would become the drive for my further creations. Art Revolution Taipei is such a well-organized art show with world class. Appreciate Art Director, juries, staff and friends in Taiwan to support me. I enjoyed this exhibition very much, and felt at home too.
Watanabe Hiroshi (Japan)
I felt so reluctant leave Taiwan after 5 days’ exhibition, which was just too short.
Sanzi (Mainland China)
It’s my first time to visit Taiwan and the exhibition of A.R.T. I think the service was quite good. My paintings focus on expressing Laozi’s Taoism, and relationship between human and nature. It takes me one month to one year to finish a painting, which is inspired mostly from the daily life.
Chen Jun (Mainland China)
A.R.T. is well-organized to have every detail in place, which is superior to art shows in China.
Zhang Yuying (Mainland China)
Upon entering the venue, I immediately felt that A.R.T. was getting better and better with more detailed process in place. Exhibiting artists came from more different countries with much better quality in overall. The great number of visitors indicated the success of A.R.T. to be so attractive. The organizer has offered tremendous supports to artists, which makes me feel respected and pampered. I’m very touched with great appreciation. Artists can upgrade themselves by exchanging and learning from others by participating in A.R.T..
Zhang Shiying (Mainland China)
The planning of A.R.T. is much better than that of last year, with spacious routes and more exquisite artworks. In particular, the neoclassic supercar from Prof. Lee Sun-Don and DeMora is just magnificent. The combination of Prof. Lee’s painting with the car is particularly amazing. It’s exactly the right place for that stunning painting on that very car, which makes it brightened.
Wang Dazhi (Mainland China)
It’s my first time to participate A.R.T., which is incredible. The organizer respects artists greatly. So many artists exhibit outstanding artworks in diversified styles and media, I has learned something from others. When I talked to viewers, it’s pleasant to know that people understand my artistic philosophy. By the end, arts should be understandable, not just self-appreciation. The planning from the organizer was excellent with different features for each section. The venue was clean. The idea for Hundred of Celebrities was great too, since arts should be part of the daily life, not just something untouchable; it’s good to interact with people and becomes closer.
Li Baiming (Mainland China)
Taiwan is an important place for the Asian art market. It’s my first year to participate A.R.T., which I heard about A.R.T. last year. There’s well-arranged promotion in place, especially the ink painting section. New styles are formed from the innovative concepts combined with conventional techniques. Recently the ink paintings are popular in the market. It’s great that A.R.T. has sensed and approached the market trend.
Miao Chongan (Mainland China)
The planning for A.R.T. was great with artworks from different countries, which indicated a wide vision of A.R.T..
Lu Tsung-Tsan (Taiwan)
To respected partners from A.R.T.,
Art Revolution Taipei keeps on creating the history page by page. I’m grateful to all dedicated and diligent Directors and volunteers for the detailed planning, arrangements, and publicity, so every exhibiting artist can display his/her work at this international stage smoothly, and Taiwan can seen from our efforts and dedications in arts.
Director Lee’s supercar is such a awesome role model for all junior artists. According to him, “we don’t do what people did.” This concept is also my principle in quest of arts: the art is not something by following others’ footsteps, but to discover and respect every individual, then help each of them to glow themselves. Artists build bridges leading to happiness.
Deeply appreciate everyone who has involved in this grand festival. Go for it, and be happy for it.
Let’s enjoy art, enjoy happiness next year!
Wei Jui-Tsung (Taiwan)
I’m so grateful that A.R.T. offered me a nice platform. There were so many people visiting A.R.T. and savoring paintings. Some viewers shared with me their feelings about my paintings, and I was so excited with those who really understood my inner world. I was too excited too excited to sleep at the night of VIP Preview, even staying up until 2:00 AM.
Yang Chih-Ying (Taiwan)
The organizer of A.R.T. was dedicated, and staff very kind, which made me feel warm at heart. The ink painting was not the mainstream in the market for my previous exhibitions. I felt grateful that A.R.T. planned a special section for ink paintings, which granted me the opportunity to introduce my works to the public. Hope I can take part in the exhibition next year.
Su Chung-Ming (Taiwan)
The planning of A.R.T. was nice, and I hope there’ll be more artists to exhibit the ink paintings.

It felt great not just to have the opportunity to exhibit my works and to exchange ideas with others, but also to meet other artists. Thanks A.R.T. has established an excellent platform and to offer a good opportunity.
Cheng Chen-Wen (Taiwan)
This is my fourth participation in A.R.T., and it’s great to see so many young exhibiting artists who are in need of a stage. Staff’s efficiency was amazing. It’s touching to see people from all walks of life to serve here with a humble heart. I felt happy to meet acquaintances and existing collectors here, just like a huge family. Exhibiting artists selected by the organizer were more diversified than before, it’s highly worthy of visiting.
Lin Jen-Shan (Taiwan)
It made me improve myself greatly by participating A.R.T. My hearty appreciation to the organizer!

Lai Tian-Ming (Taiwan)
An exclamation mark would be my compliments to A.R.T. with incredibly outperforming volunteers. Their working attitude and expertise made me feel assured to fully count on them. The achievements in the organizing scale as well as diversities in watchable artworks are far beyond the Art Fair Tokyo I visited. The organizer has splendid arrangements in curation, publicity and layout. My sincerest appreciation to Art Director!
Rita Lee (Taiwan)
I love the beautifully decorated booth, to have paintings placed at a meticulously designed booth, as well as to interact and converse with viewers lively.
The overall quality of visitors to A.R.T. is good enough to converse with artists.
It’s painstaking to hold a grand event like this, very time-consuming and labor-intensive. My works were taken by complete strangers, which made me feel self-fulfilled greatly.
A.R.T. offered excellent and thorough services.
Artists invited by A.R.T. are diversified; sales person are responsible with good training. Directors visited booths with collectors is very encouraging to artists, also a great way of operation.
A.R.T. is getting better and better, so obvious to art circles.
A.R.T. is great, with numerous visitors. Through interactions, artists could understand how the collector’s acceptability is. That’s what the general culture center is lack of. Moreover, it’s also a good opportunity to observe other artists’ varied styles.
Visitors to A.R.T. are real art lovers with good taste and high standard.
Art installers are considerate in details such as traffic flow guiding, parking, handling paintings and installing with gradienter.
Artworks exhibiting at A.R.T. are richly diversified and appealing to the market trend.
A.R.T. is great in every aspect.
Lee Han-Ching (Taiwan)
Participation increases the exposure of my works, which is an intangible value. Visitors crowded to A.R.T., sales staff was great and helpful.
Supports and warmth from collectors are transformed into driving forces for my creations, which motivates me to work harder.
The most new collectors ever emerged this year. Appreciate that so many people are fond of my paintings.
Viewers enjoyed a lot the new series of our paintings exhibiting at A.R.T. which were quite different than last year. It’s joyous during the process in working the new series while having flowers and gardens in mind. The rich colors from scattering sunshine make us as happy as watching the rainbow.
Lin Ya-Ping (Taiwan)
Carrying on the theme in “Walk of Life” from last year, I add the plum blossom as another to my works. To depict the state of mind in Chinese ink paintings via western oil paints is possible to have a broader expression.
The process of stroke by stroke is like a practicing Buddhist transcribing the Heart sutra. Artworks are bridges for spiritual communication among people. The process in working an artwork is as if working on a spiritual sculpture. Wish the birth and emergence of an artwork can dissipate the spirits, then enhance the peace and in the society.
A.R.T. is a great platform for exposure. I make lots of friends here, and it felt awesome. I like it.
A.R.T. has offered dedicated services, and staff would assist in artwork installing. They would solve any issue I raised. It’s a great teamwork to serve different purposes by colors of their uniforms.
It’s my first time to participate in A.R.T., which is my first art show ever. It seems most visitors are interested in paintings and/or with art backgrounds. There are quite some collectors being more willing to look at paintings. It’s great to interact with different kind of people. Appreciate various instructions from Art Director which benefit me a lot.
Houng Shau-Jhe (Taiwan)
My works are mainly styled with frost glass, to depict the distance between realistic and abstract images. To participate in the show is to understand how the public accept my works.
Lin Tsung-Fan (Taiwan)
A.R.T. is better than last year; it demonstrates the organizer’s dedications on artworks, venue or the overall planning, all in high standard. My works for this year’s exhibition are mainly themed in the local landscape in Taiwan. Among them, most are images about Yuan-Dao Kuan-Yin Temple, in which the tranquil aura meeting my quest for a peaceful mind in creations. Those works also strike a chord in the hearts of visitors ever been there. If viable, I hope there’ll be a more spacious venue to house more artists for more people to visit next year.
Ou Hsiao-Chun (Taiwan)
I’ve been striving for a quest in varied styles for my works, to have different expression at different phase with my concerns on the natural ecosystem. This is my first time to participate A.R.T. It feels great about the venue planning. Visitors are in good quality too. Compared to last year, the contemporary expression is even more upgraded. The new ink painting section is great too, making A.R.T. more diversified.

Visitors, participants in Art Your Compassion‧Hundreds of Celebrities

I used the same metals and paints as that of the neo-class supercar at the exhibition to create two pieces of artworks for charity sale. The theme expresses my relation to the car. The spirit of the car infuses into the paintings, in which part of the gold color is in 24k gold.

Hundreds of Celebrities is an annual event. It’s a horse year in 2014, and my sign is horse too, so I use horse as my theme in black and white colors only. Because it’s necessary for people to distinguish black and white(good and evil). It’s great to have my contribution to a charity event.

I painted the sky and water with the technique of sculpture by stacks of paints on the canvas; thus resulting in dimensional effects with lights and shadows.

Not only I can join the charities, but also the small canvas make it viable for the public to collect the real painting, which makes this event even more meaningful. I like it very much.
Chen Pei-Yi, Artist
My work is to magnify the detail of a flower and depict it in realistic techniques. It looks like an abstract painting from a close view, but a blossoming flower from a distance. It’s a great event to help people with a happy charity. Celebrities from all walk of life display diversified artworks which is really eye-opening.
The theme for my work is with two cups in blue and white porcelain, in which the Chinese pronunciation is the same as “compassion”. There’s a heart at the cross-section between two cups, responsive to the purpose of charity sale.
Miao Chongan, Artist
This is the smallest painting I ever did, titled “Sacred Temple at Holy Mountains”. I depict the landscape I saw in Bhutan two years with the style of Chinese painting. I’m pleased to participate in the charity sale of Hundreds of Celebrities.

Placing Artists at the Center Stage, Building A.R.T. as Asia’s Indexical Art Fair
Art is not just culture but also education, and therefore, it must not be confined to the quest for mere commercial gain. To return art to its essential character and let the artist stand directly before the world, the Art Revolution Taipei (A.R.T.), an international art fair based in Taipei, will be curated around dual axes: to place artists at the center stage and to design the entire art fair as a colossal work of art. It aims to establish itself as an indexical art fair of Asia. In its premiere in 2011, it made a record with 89.66% of the participating artists reporting having sales during the fair, a performance close to world’s top art fairs such as the Art Basel. For the 2nd A.R.T., the rate climbed to 91.18%. The 3rd A.R.T. drew even more collectors to visit; and some artists sold out all their exhibiting works right at the VIP Preview. The A.R.T. has established its “absolute brand name,” becoming one of Asia’s most characteristic art fair.
“Impressionist‧Contemporary” -- Creating a New Impression of contemporary Art
To challenge the artist’s creativity and to diversify the A.R.T. exhibition style, the art fair will center around a certain theme every year. For 2014, the annual theme is “Impressionist‧Contemporary.” The Art Director of A.R.T. Lee Sun-Don requests the participating artists to express the aura of impressionism using contemporary concepts, or to interpret their impressions of the contemporary in virtue of impressionism. Very challenging and yet highly anticipated. In line with the top artists of the world, the A.R.T. is creating a new impression of contemporary art.
With 280 artists from 48 nations to Participate – An Art Fair with Multicultural Flair
The A.R.T. has a very rigorous set of standards to select only the best artworks for exhibition. In addition, to refresh its visitors’ visual experiences, it sets a 60% replacement rate, namely 60% of the exhibiting artists being the new participants. For this year, there will be 280 artists from 48 countries to exhibit in total of 2000 pieces of artwork. Their participation brings multicultural flare to shine the art fair and shed light on the contemporary art. This shall be a marvelous art feast.

Substantiating the ideal of exhibiting the artworks with potential to become “future classics,” the section of “Curatorial Classics” is comprised of works best presenting the annual thematic spirit, the Special Collection, and the units specially curated by Art Director Lee Sun-Don.
With “Impressionist‧Contemporary” as the annual theme, the thematic spirit for this year is “When Impressionism Gallops into the Contemporary.” We specially invite Taiwan’s first artist conducting a crossover creation with an international supercar brand, namely Lee Sun-Don, to present his installation art on classic supercar, demonstrating “The Power of Art, the Liberation of Life”.
For the Special Collection, there are mainland China’s rising stars Li Limin, Deng Wushu, Zhao Xin, and many others – all exhibiting for the first time in Taiwan. In addition, there is the unit of “Lions of the Snow Mountains,” which features artworks portraying Tibetan culture by realist artists Wang Zhaoju and Sui Jiangsheng.
In this section, you may also find works by Spanish Alfonso Cuñado Rodríguez, who had a complete sellout at last year’s A.R.T.; Liu Baojun, who is known for his “Pipe-Smoking Women”; Liu Jiu-Tong, whose artworks poetically reveal an open and liberating ambience; Chen Li, a silver award winner of Sichuang’s watercolor painting competition.

Moreover, X-Power Gallery will present the international-renowned artist Lee Sun-Don, who is best known for his “totemic energy art,” with his newest series, “Great Treasure Gate 2014,” and the rising female art trio Ma Sing Ling, together with works by Liu Ruifeng and Wen Jie.
Taiwan Contemporary Art
This section features both the artists in the prime of their life and the emerging talents, displaying diversified and cross-generational facets of contemporary art in Taiwan. For painting, there are Lu Tsung-Tsan (whose A.R.T.’s selling record of last year doubled that of the year before), landscape specialist Lin Tsung-Fan, and Wong Liang-Yuan whose works reveal a mysterious tincture. In sculpture, Hsu Tung-Rung will display his artworks transformed from abstract into semi-concrete presentation, the series of “Great Form Is beyond Form.” There are also sculptures featuring the beauty of young girls by Peng Kuang-Chun and Dick Lü. As to installation art, you will see the creations by Rita Li and Tomoya Tsukamoto. Serving as A.R.T.’s consultant, Mickey Huang also leads graffiti artist ANO and cartoonist-style painter Acer Lü to exhibit. You can even come to behold the marvelous creativities of Taiwan’s art masters, such as Taiwan’s folk art pioneer Shiy Der Chin, the humorous and knowledgeable self-taught artist Max Liu, and photography master Daniel Lee.

Among those are: Huang Gang, Du Xi, Xue Song, and Sanzi. The popular artists include also Pei Lianzhi, Zhang Yuying, Zhang Shiying, and Chen Jun. There are also very affordable artworks by Wang Delong, Chen Xiangming, Liang Weiping, Lin Lishan, Zhao Huxie, and Wang Shanman. The gigantic painting in size of 10 by 8 meters by Cai Tiancong is especially eye-catching.
International Contemporary Art
While exhibiting master artworks, such as those by Chinese-born French Art Academician Chu Teh-Chun and Japanese Yayoi Kusama, this section comprises two other units: “The Greats vis-à-vis the Greats” and “Spaniard Art Zone.”
“The Greats vis-à-vis the Greats” highlights the works by artists with exquisite skills and distinguished styles, such as British Richard Yang, French Thibault Jandot, Italian Sergio Cerchi, Russian Dmitry Ermolov, Spanish Alex Alemany, Turkish Orhan Coplu, and Hungarian Istvan Cene gal. Some of them exhibit the first time in Asia.
The “Spaniard Art Zone” features first and foremost the world’s leading surrealism artist Arnua Alemany, whose works demonstrate a beautiful infusion of realism and magic realism. Exhibiting artists include also Equipo Sur, Fermín Colomer, Marc Figueras, Mario Garcia Miro, and Mariano Gonzalez Beltran.
Contemporary Ink “ Water Flows and Color Shows ”
This is a new section, which is also the first of its kind in Asia – dedicated to showcase the most popular type of artwork nowadays, namely, the ink painting. Artworks displayed are created by artists from mainland China as well as Taiwan, including Chen Qi, Liao Meilan, Sha Qinghua, Su Chongmin, Li Baiming, Yang Zhiying, Lin Wenli, Wei Ruizong, Xiao Jusheng, and Miao Chong’an.

The sponsored artists include Lü Hsiao-Han, Tsai Fu-Jung, Wang Hsiao-Ching, Cheng Chung-Hsuan, Shi Hung-I, and many others.
