Ta-Wei Huang (b. 1988) does not have an academic background in art. As a child he drew compulsively but discovered he wanted to become an artist when he studied marketing in college.

Whereas he considers that future and past belong to the realm of imagination, Huang focuses solely on moments that are happening in the status of “now”. Walking and observing structures and details of environments and surroundings form the core of his practice. Through the use of paintings, installations, photography, sound recording and videography. He places the emphasis on interaction and interplay between each structure as well as with society, in his effort to invite people to communicate with the elements from daily life. Ta-Wei Huang lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan.
