Ink on paper


A-Sun Wu (B. 1942) is a Taiwanese artist who has been living between Paris and Taipei since the early 1990s. He is a rare artist who was educated as a classical painter at the Taipei School of Fine Arts. He then came to study in Europe, then stayed in the United States to take the pulse of Western contemporary art. But his curiosity did not stop there.

The many trips to Africa, South America and the Pacific Islands allowed him to rediscover the tropical forests of his youth and to meet people close to nature and living outside of modernity. From them, he also drew an aesthetic vocabulary that was familiar to him, close to that of the Austronesians in Taiwan.

His expressionist sensibility is often inspired by the power and vigour of the tribal arts of the regions he has travelled through.

 A-Sun Wu experiments with various techniques, painting with acrylic on canvas and wood, and with ink on paper. He also sculpts on wood.
