Colasa is an avant-garde artist known for his eerie actions and imaginations. He is constantly challenging the limit of morality though his works, and abnormality to present the melancholy of his inner soul. In addition to his stencils graffiti, Colasa also continuously experiences with new materials and substances to enhance the completion of his works.
Having studied art since childhood, Colasa insists on the defiance of traditional art forms and adopts a rather unconventional creative method-graffiti. With his very own unique style and Chinese ink inspired techniques, Colasa is making a name for himself in the international arena!
Colasa was born in Taiwan and majored in art related fields through out his academic career. After graduating from high school, Colasa fell in love with skateboarding and graffiti. At the time, street culture or subculture was still very new to Taiwan, and so he had to look towards the internet to find anything related graffiti art. After university, Colasa found a job working in a tattoo parlour and has continued to master his craft as a professional artist ever since.
“When I started doing stencil graffiti, I was experimenting with a variety of different colors. However I’ve naturally gravitated towards using just black and white. I guess it’s sort of my way to showcase my own unique style. Audiences tend to think that my work is very dark and full of violence, but what I truly want to express is actually the lightness after dark.”
In the past, Colasa’s work tends to focus on technique and objective meaning. However, he now tries to bring excitement to his work and sees his pieces as coming truly from the heart
Colasa’s impressive resume includes collaborations and exhibitions with the NIKE, CONVERSE, Heineken, NIXON, Espionage Gallery in Australia, Eslite Bookstore, MOCA Taipei, TBA Magazine, WELLA, PROTON, TAIPEI 101, agnès b, and adidas.
