 楊柏林 ( Po-Lin Yang ) Po-Lin Yang was born in 1954 in Jinhu Village on the seacoast of Kouhu Township in Yunlin County, Taiwan. His real name is Xiang Yang. When he was in grade four, he was determined to become an artist. With his mother’s support, after graduating from elementary school, he moved to Taipei for self-learning and pursuing his dream. Although he has no academic background, his creations come in many forms, including sculptures, paintings, architectural design, public landscape, and installation art. Moreover, copper, iron, stainless steel, stone, bamboo, oyster shells, mosaics, balloon cloth… are materials that he has used in creating spatial aesthetics or critiquing living environments. His works have been awarded with the first place in public artwork competitions (by Ministry of Culture). Furthermore, his works have been part of the collections of many major art museums. They can also be seen in many homes, hotels, and plazas in Taipei, Taichung, Kaohsiung, Shanghai, and Beijing. In his teenage years, because he worked part-time at a bookstore, he was exposed to literature and developed the habit of reading massively. He also frequently published his essays and poems on newspapers and magazines. In 2012, he published a semiautobiographical book “The Time Has Come”. Hsun Chiang, the writer, said “Po-Lin Yang has just been nurturing his art in the instinctive and intuitive world.” In addition, he has been described by Zai-Qin Nee, the curator of National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, as “the genius who wanders about inside and outside of schools”. When he was seventeen years old, his “Youth” was awarded the third place in the provincial watercolor arts exhibition. In 1986, he was elected as one of the ten most outstanding youths in Yunlin County. In 2009, he was appointed as the campus artist-in-residence of Chinese Culture University. Currently, he is the president of Taiwan Sculptors Association of Asia.
