Chien Wei Bali, a Puyuma artist, his muse is the happy childhood memories. Aspired by “peace and love”, he works with mixed media on different art forms, including setting installation, coloring beddings, fashion design, ink wash, performance, and driftwood arts. As an artist, he doesn’t “create arts alone in his world”; instead, he thinks that “creativity is a flow of love, and the involvement of society is the optimal fuel; because it will spark the creator’s passion and inspiration.” Over the years, he has insisted to “create arts that are intimate to the land” as he believes that “an artist must be connected to the locale.”
He draws the nutrients from the earth for his creativity, upholding the concept that human is a part of all things in nature. He views every flower, every blade of grass, a tree, or even rock are his companions and friends. They are all embodied by a spiritual regularity within the cosmic nature. This worldview can be perceived in all of his works. In terms of form, he presents and applies natural materials directly, emphasizing a naturally rhythmic linear and uncomplicated color scheme. As for the theme, it is a reflection on the change of the environment. As an artist living in the natural environment, he is not concerned with presenting artistic propositions through his works but rather with the destruction or disturbance of the environment that worries him most. Therefore, on the one hand, his works celebrate nature in reverence, and on the other hand, as elegies for the destruction of the environment caused by human civilization.
