We Don’t Hate Monsters
We have been fascinated by monsters since the beginning of time. Yes, monsters, creatures, unusual fantasies, and abnormal subjects. It’s easy to think of the terrible ones from movies and novels. However, people do not want to get rid of monsters for good. Curiosity drives us looking forward to their arrival, but fear wills us waiting patiently. North Vancouver artist Li Tung is not just to draw monsters on canvas. Art is a monster in his life, neither controllable nor predictable. It is also why art is always as charming as a monster. Visit Li’s exhibition at Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Society (8853 Selkirk Street, Vancouver) until October 31, 2019.
Crossing Mountains and Seas
North Vancouver artist Li Tung is creating all the character drawings and Chinese calligraphy for the inter-disciplinary production of Crossing Mountains and Seas being presented at the Vancouver Playhouse on July 20, 2019, at 8 p.m. as part of Taiwan-Canada Culture Exchange Month. The live performance, co-presented by the Sound of Dragon Society, is a journey through an imagined video game that crosses over modern day Canada and a magical world of pre-historic China, as described in the ancient book Shan Hai Jing, or, the Crossing Mountains and Seas.
