The artist was supported by The Ministry of Culture of Taiwan twice with his residency program in CAI, Boston and Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado.

Chang specializes in transforming all sorts of media into his own distinctive style and characteristics.

Yu-Chia Chang is also vocalist and guitarist in BIKE, serving as the main songwriter and lyricist of the band. The band launched its first album “Hey! Let me think about it!” in 2013 and was recommended by Spark Chen, the vocalist of GMA-nominated band Quarterback, as well as renowned Taiwanese music critic Yeves Tsai.

Artist’s Statement

My artworks have always been starting from my personal style of art as well as switching between a variety of media in order to express all kinds of sentiments in life. I’d like to evoke people’s mutual memories and resonate with viewers though my art. My mechanical installations and statues derives from the earlier paintings. Afterwards, I experienced more with wood and silk. I Hope my art bring new energies and connections to both the viewers and the artist.
