BACK
1982年生於台北,為台灣著名塗鴉、壁畫藝術創作者。擅長以塗鴉藝術創作形式和各空間、環境中既有的物件互動、融合。作品表現出他對現下社會的價值觀想法以及對生命消逝的傷感,創作散見於台灣各地的街角、廢墟與私人空間。近年亦擴展藝術地圖至全世界各地與在地居民進行壁畫、塗鴉創作。 Candy Bird, born in Taipei in 1982, is a famous Taiwanese graffiti and mural art artist. He is good at interacting with the environment and combining his graffiti with the space, showing his thoughts about the society’s value and his sorrow to vanishing lives. His artwork can be found in street corners, ruins and private spaces around Taiwan. In recent years, he also expands his artistic map into the world, creating graffiti and mural art with the residents. 創作自述 街頭探險家,一個為街頭探險者所設計的家。

這件作品源起於受到台灣街頭塗鴉藝術家Candy Bird邀請,由雙方共同合作一作品,參與其在尊彩藝術中心2016年的個展。這個街頭探險「家」的想像,大量運用台灣街頭常見的生活意象物,如攤車、板凳、瓦斯桶、熱水器、摩托三輪車、收音機等等,配合台灣常見的鍍鋅鐵件、露明的hinge、不鏽鋼設備,最後由Candy Bird在車體表面自由塗鴉並設置內部裝置。

城市的街道除了是一般定義的公共空間,它也可能是某些人賴以生存的關鍵。這個作品中想像的塗鴉客在街頭創作,也在街頭生活,他的創作狀態與生活狀態,忠實的反映著他所居住的城市狀態。 '' Street Explorer '', a house which is specially designed for street explorers.

The co-artwork '' Street Explorer '', which was invited by the Taiwan street graffiti artist Candy Bird, participated in Candy Bird’s solo exhibition in Liang Gallery at 2016. The image of this ''house'' widely used vendors, stool, gas tank, water heater, motor-bike, radio and many common tools from Taiwanese streets. Moreover, it's also furnished with some rustproofing steel, hinges, and stainless steel facilities, and then completed with the free graffiti on the motor bike's surface by Candy Bird.

The streets in cities are not only public spaces but also the possible key that some people depend on to live. In this artwork, the imagined graffiti artist creates and lives on streets. His creating condition and his living condition honestly reflect the condition of the city he resides.
