【就是爽啦!No Age Second Coming]─Reach





By Reach


如果要說我跟No Age有什麼共通點
那就是我們曾經都玩過滑板
也因為滑板開始了我們創作的旅程…
我也曾經試著吃素

雖然維持不到一個月…

28歲以前
也是不菸不酒的健康好青年…

但這都不是重點
這次跟NO AGE的合作
其實我期待了許久

不只因為是跟NO AGE這樣的好樂團搭檔演出
更是因為一直以來我想作的Live Painting
就是要與音樂作真正的結合

沒有草圖這回事
沒有事先的安排

只有隨著音樂的起伏
感受現場的氛圍
去創造出最符合當下的作品
純粹只有對於塗鴉與搖滾樂的熱情

(註解:Artist真的不太會講話,請大家來看他畫畫比較實在)



About REACH

1995年開始塗鴉之路,為早期台灣塗鴉先鋒之一,孕育台灣塗鴉成長的重要人物。起於傳統塗鴉背景,從早期便開始參與藝術家駐村及國際藝術節,更與美術館合作,試圖將台灣塗鴉帶進藝術領域。曾與眾多國際級塗鴉藝術家及知名品牌合作,除了塗鴉,也是ㄧ位玩具設計師、插畫家及攝影師,具有多次規劃展覽與品牌形象的經驗,近年開始遠赴歐美、日本與中國等海外各地舉行展覽,著名的作品是一系列稱為「Pink Bear & Blue Cat」的人物,以桃紅與鮮藍為代表色,其可愛詼諧的風格,給人強烈的視覺感受及高辨識度。06年開始以Blue Cat的元素延伸成全新的風格、並稱之為「Rabbit Foot」系列。並於08年編輯「TOOYA! 塗鴉人轟炸台灣」一書、努力擴展台灣塗鴉在國際上的重要性。
A pioneer who constantly pushes Taiwanese graffiti to the international platform, and courageously dedicates his life to graffiti. Battling through Europe, Japan and China, Reach has gotten up to disseminate the passion of Taiwanese graffiti. With vast experience transforming from Bomber, Wildstyle, to 3D, Reach’s style carries mature and confine penetration. He fades out the glamorous techniques and applies a breezy attitude to piece together the dribs and drabs of life. Clean and clear colors with well-crafted contouring reflects his persistence in his life philosophy for perfection. Depending on the rise and fall of his mood, his creations vary from simple to complicated art forms, a reflection of his mind. With extensive experience, he has never given up on this tough journey of graffiti. His art has already attracted multiple industries and fields for collaboration. Passion is the force behind his persistence and without regret, he keeps moving forward. He is a pioneer for Taiwanese graffiti development, constantly pushing the local culture abroad. Recently in 2008, Reach published his first publication, "Tooya-Taiwan Graffiti", and has continued to established his place on the global platform.
