He has won the HuangSi Award, Kaohsiung Excellent Award , Taiwan Emerging Artists Award’s Jury Prize and the Grandview Emerging Artists Award. He has participated in art fairs and salon exhibitions in Paris, Shanghai and Taiwan. From childhood, he moved to India and Thailand for more than ten years because of his father's work. During this period, he went back and forth between Taiwan and other places, and the cultural development of an artist’s view was gradually developed from these three places. Po’s recent studies are the issue between virtual-digital and contemporary ink painting. He aims at the combination of installations in the field of ink painting and the presence of sound, and expanding the extension of ink painting genealogy and territory in contemporary art.
"Typhoon Landscape Series", Video installation, LED light box, Boeing 747 window, ready-made, 2021-2022
From the history of modern transportation by plane, the ink painting’s view of nature is written in the form of a typhoon. The looping simulation map similar to the Meteorological Bureau is used to switch the static and dynamic interface to present the ink painting’s visual field. Typhoons have always been an issue faced by Taiwan-typed climate, and its wind and rain are infiltrated in people's physical memory. Can art write weather in its own way? A contemporary view of ink painting may be able to pave the way for the phenomenon of this context with the fact that we are facing our technologies in the face of artificial nature.
