Lai Wei-Yu

賴威宇 Lai Wei-Yu

藝術家賴威宇的繪畫世界,就像費里尼那匹暗藏禍心的木馬,呈現的是一張張千奇百怪的我城眾生相,奇幻誇張的情節,洋溢著叮叮咚咚嘉年華式的歡樂。從早期較為寫實的人物畫,到逐漸走向富幻想、象徵、劇場氣息的創作路線,賴威宇將看似荒謬的事件,以孩子般的遊戲心,將畫布塗抹得像費里尼的彩色萬花筒,邀請觀者進入其中一起狂歡、喧囂,但在陽光照不到的角落,我們同時也看到了人生的無奈與荒涼。

賴威宇的創作人生就如同一部又一部的電影,題材則是成長過程中不斷上演的精彩冒險。所有的希望、失落、驚懼、歡樂,就像不斷變換的蒙太奇,跳脫傳統敘事軸線,自由穿梭現實與夢境之間。藝術家從現實中汲取靈感然後綻放出燦爛的火花,在夢境的霧靄中翱翔以尋找現實的通道,在諷刺的布幕後掩藏一抹同情的悲涼,看似情理之中,卻又是虛構出來的浮世畫卷。也許這世界並不美好,甜蜜的生活下是分崩離析的殘片,於是我們需要電影大口呼吸,於是我們在這裡繼續做夢,以畫筆屠城。

About
Artist Lai Wei-yu’s world of art is like Fellini’s Trojan Horse, depicting the strange masses in exaggerated festive celebration. Transitioning from realistic portraits to the fantastic, symbolic, and dramatic style seen now, Lai takes seemingly absurd situations and explores them with a childish wonder, creating paintings reminiscent of Fellini’s rainbow kaleidoscopes, inviting viewers to revel and celebrate. However, in the dark corners neglected by the light, we also catch a glimpse of life’s frustration and desolation.

Lai’s creative life has been movie-like, featuring the exciting adventures encountered while growing up. Hope, disappointment, shock, and joy change constantly in a montage, breaking from traditional linear storytelling, traversing freely between reality and dreamworld. The artist derives inspiration from life, turning it into brilliant sparks, groping through the fog in search of a path, hiding a sad sympathy behind the veneer of satire. What appears rational upon first glance turns out to be fabricated Ukiyo-e. Our world may be a flawed one, broken pieces beneath seemingly sweet life – and so we need movies that allow us to breath. And thus we dream, sieging the city through art and brush.
