Michael Lin

(b. 1964, Tokyo)
Michael Lin was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1964, raised in Taiwan and studied in Los Angeles, California. He currently lives and works in Brussels, Taipei and Shanghai.

He became well known in the late 1990s for his use of vast expanse of bold flowers, a visual motif that is appropriated mostly from traditional Taiwanese textiles from the 1960s. He chose them because they were a part of a cultural language that was disappearing. Lin's work also has associations with architecture, as he conceives of his art not merely as a piece of flat canvas but as a space that the viewers can interact with and within.
