Tsai, Yi-Wei
Paradise, Mixed media, 150 x 150 cm.

"Life" is a playground. With unfathomable creativity, he designs his paradise. I used popular artistic totems (e.g. the eight immortals, peonies, portraits) and various artistic strategies (light bulbs) to illuminate the character in the picture (my grandfather) in order to create an illusory atmosphere with dazzling splendour and to express respect and commemoration of life with an attitude of jubilation.
