Taiwanese paper artist Hung Hsin-fu (洪新富) was invited to this year’s D’Days Festival at the
Louvre in France to present his art at the Taiwan Unfolding exhibition, a major paper art showcase in the event.
Hung, who has spent more than 30 years creating and promoting paper art, sat down with The News Lens International to share his 20 years’ experience exhibiting overseas and promoting education through art.
The artist’s first exhibition abroad was in Belgium in 1992. His art has been displayed in multiple countries since, including Hungary and Russia.
Despite having been to many countries, Hung says he never thought that his work would be showcased at the Louvre, adding that the invitation to exhibit at the D’Days Festival was a very encouraging gesture.
Hung spent three months preparing over a hundred pieces to showcase at D’Days, and flew to France last week to assemble all the work himself for the exhibition.
The artist’s time and hard work paid off. [FULL STORY]
