李迪權|LEE Tekkhean

李迪權,綽號小雞,馬來西亞霹靂州玲瓏人,在台灣完成高等教育自國立台灣師範大學美術系與國立台北藝術大學造形研究所版畫組畢業,目前就讀於國立臺灣藝術大學博士班,也在台灣生活與工作。長期鑽研「木刻版畫」,一種結合勞動力與專注的藝術形式。2020年,他將這樣的藝術形式,轉化為藝術抗爭。

小雞(李迪權,又名 Tekkhean Lee)在示威期間前往香港,並帶回一系列重要木刻版畫。這些作品以二十世紀三十年代「新木刻版畫運動」中盛行的左派版畫概念進行創作,以隨手可得的木板充當臨時版材,展現當下的意識型態與社會狀態。
小雞效法它們的創作方式,並汲取左派木刻的美學觀為師,製作了一系列充滿戲劇張力的黑白木刻版畫。

He brought back an important series of woodcuts, made urgently, in the manner of the “Leftwing Prints” during the New Woodcut Movement of the 1930s, which brought together engravers, experts in the art of making dark and expressive images on makeshift wooden boards, with the means at hand, in the urgency of the revolution and illustrating the ideology in progress. Xiaoji followed their path, in accordance with the aesthetic ideal of Lu Xun (魯迅).
