HUNG GALAXY. HUNG YI
The Ciutat de les Arts I les Ciències hosts the open access “Hung Galaxy” exposition, a set of fourteen sculptures by the artist Hung Yi, inspired by Taiwanese culture and day-to-day life, with the bright colours that are seen in traditional Taiwanese patterns.
Hung Yi’s works have to do with the Chinese New Year, where animals are associated with each and every year. His sculptures are animals developed from a very special way of looking and observing which gives the display its name: “Hung Galaxy”. This galaxy is inhabited by an endless number of animals with a very oriental vision expressed in painstakingly detailed drawings.
Hung Yi is a sculptor who was born in Taiwan in 1970. His work has been exhibited in numerous art museums and galleries throughout the world. In recent years, he has been very prolific in producing urban art with works located in the streets of leading cities. His colouristic sculptures are also found on permanent display in different places such as airports, his country’s schools… some of which have been collected by museums such as his series of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac.
