Introduction

A-Sun WU was born in Taiwan in 1942. He lives and works in Taipei and Paris from the 1990's.

 

 

 

baudoin lebon displays the work of A-Sun Wu whom presents his artworks in chinese ink. The artist, a traveler, draws his inspiration and recreates what he discovers during his travels.

In the chaos of our world, Mankind becomes the center of his project.

 

The main preoccupation of A-Sun Wu is Mankind and this since the 1970's.

 

Inspired by his childhood?s memories in Taiwan, A-Sun Wu painted vast, colorful, dynamic and Asian paintings.

 

His discovery of other continents in the 1980's (almost 30 countries visited in Africa) opened up the scope of possibilities and the mark left by the culture of the natives transpires into his works.

 

With the researches he conducted and the primitive energy that stems from it, A-Sun Wu transcribes in his works, his vision of a world in which Mankind is confronted with his natural environment.

 

His work keeps evolving. Chinese ink currently dominates. A slight touch of color appears sometimes but the most important is already said.

 

The breath (qi), the mind and the essence of things (tao) summarizes this intuitive painting in which the inner force prevails over resemblance and shape.

 

This powerful style is translated by a violent gesture which one can find in A-Sun Wu Mount Huang?s landscapes or in the portraits of the tribes he met during his travels.
