Wilson Shieh, a painter being trained with Chinese fine-brush (gongbi) technique, works on various media ranged from Chinese ink drawing on silk to acrylic on canvas to paper cutout collage. He focuses on human bodies as his theme for narration. Transforming figuration by means of tailor-made costumes, the identity of modern people is always in query in his art world.
