Ting-Tong, Chang

Born in 1982, Taipei, Taiwan, live in London, UK


5A, Amersham Road, New Cross London

Ting-Tong, Chang, born 1982, won his MFA at Goldsmiths, University of London. His artistic practice covers both street art and elements of traditional painting and sculpture. Most interested in urban space and exploration of potential dialogue between institution and individuals. Originally from Taiwan, lives and works in London, he organized numerous artistic interventions and events in the streets of the cities. His installations marked with brevity and absurd objects getting to the core of contemporary problems: globalization stimulated by the developments in technology, blurred boundaries between nations, or the omniscient fear of terrorism that we have already got accustomed to. Freely and with a wicked dose a black humour, he toys with such concepts as death, war, or mass destruction, which have become ingrained in today’s world. Ting-Tong has exhibited and received a number of awards internationally, including London, Berlin, Warsaw, Miami, Hong Kong, Beijing and Taipei.
