Paintings of people and lush scenery by Taiwanese artist Paco Uong 台灣藝術家翁明哲:人和鬱鬱蔥蔥的風景畫作

Paco Uong is inspired by his travels to Asian countries and his home country, Taiwan. In his paintings, swarms of people populate the markets, wetlands, and well-known tourist spots. Instead of brushes, Uong uses painting knives to spread oil paint on the canvas, giving the scenes in his paintings more texture. Due to the angular strokes, the figures in his paintings seem to be constantly moving and interacting with one another. The artist also makes abundant use of bright colors, affirming the natural liveliness of each scenery.

The pieces collected here are part of an ongoing exhibit at Mingshan Art in Taipei.
