Hung, Juei-Yi, the president of River Art, has had profound foundation since the establishment of “Caves Art Center” along with his cousin in 1983. In 1992, he moved to Taichung and launched the new business “Generation Art Center.” At that time, the “Jingming 1st Street” began to have a brand new look other than a common alley under the effort of Hung Brother in holding art exhibitions and many activities. The topic for “Integrated Community Construction” swept the whole country rapidly. River Art was established and turned into the representative system in 1998 after an encounter with the artist Li Chen. Nowadays Li Chen has played an important role in world sculptural art.
Far away from uproar, River Art runs a new art space in Sanyi to present a great diversity of artworks to people at the beginning of the year of 2012. Mr. Hung believes Sanyi is a promising place for its excellent environment which made him step into the leisure industry ten years ago and thus gets him acquainted with local feature and cultural landscape. Though the local government organizes international events constantly which bring great reputation to Sanyi, Mr. Hung realizes that there is still a lack of pure art space. For more than two years, River Art locates on the famous Street for wood sculptures at last out of Hung’s affections toward this town.
The river not only gives birth and life but initiates the civilization. This lifeblood is constantly extended and nourishes the people on different lands, making extraordinary fertile soil for art. It’s our mission to create broad stage for artists to perform the depth of different culture. The unique foresight and vigor in action are still rooted in people’s minds to date. In 2009 the second generation begins to join this team. It’s worth of expectation to wait and see their performance in international art world as sharp as flood.
