Ling Li Wang
LING-LI WANG, TAIWAN
Ling-Li Wang is a non-traditional Taiwanese artist who creates surrealistic and
abstract yet simple pieces using ballpoint pens, rollerball pens, drawing pads and
lots of passion.
She studied mechanical drawing and worked in the field of 2D and 3D computer
drawing for several years before discovering the world of art therapy which is
how she found her way of creating.
Her pieces have won several awards and participated in international exhibitions,
most recently including the London Art Biennale 2021, United Kingdom and the
Mediterranean Contemporary Art Prize 2021, Italy.
You don’t need to prepare any thoughts before you try to see her works, She enjoys
different opinions and angles from different cultures and backgrounds! Which makes her
think “Oh! So they can actually become...”
The images tell the stories of her life, her gains, her pains, her hopes and her
fears. “Creation is a way for me to talk to myself.” says Wang.
Her art is not only a reflection of the changes in her life, but also a power that
gives her strength to face life’s challenges. “I created, then I grew.” says Wang, “I
appreciate that I’ve learned how to draw. When I draw, I question. I question
back, I answer, I seek, then I break through.”
In her art, worlds develop, spread and link together. Each has its own story.
You’re welcome to discover these worlds!
This is her second exhibition with the gallery. She also participated in: HERE COMES THE SUN Exhibition in November 2021.

"Metaphysics is the spring of my inspiration and the path I follow while searching for
possible solutions. I have shown landscapes that are prolonged by thought and sense of
another dimension which is not visible to us, but as such exists. Man, animals, and the
smallest object appear associatively as an indication while making the statement of the
self-recognition. I am using layer transparency, shape overlap and dynamic flow to
emphasize the importance of energy while I am using it as the inspiration for the "Reservior". "
About the painting:
"Essence of the Horse" (oil on canvas, 120x80 cm, 2021.)
These are the spiritual and molecular cells of a powerful being as shown. From tiny to
large and functional circuits, it becomes a huge force of energy. I fictionally create layers by
which I emphasize the strength of the animal in motion. The unmutable part in the eye gets
a new meaning and suddenly fiction becomes a world of evil. “Nature is born before us as
an image, as an opportunity: landscapes, horizons, dreams, strata...and people. The
characters are muted, possessed, as if someone behind called the empty faces and gave them
eyes to see where they are going."
LAKSHMI DEEPIKA, INDIA
Deepika tells us:
"I am a visual artist whose projects involve paintings using pointillism as the form of art. My
work is a mix of natural and interpretive art and I use nature as my major theme of
communicating my thoughts on canvas, leveraging the essence of life and environment with
the ideals of human innovation to create a lively, flowing artscape. For the past few years, I
have been an active professional artist and my projects examine the topics of life, creation
I am currently in my final year of Bachelor of Fine Arts and aim to become an active
professional artist and art educator with ambitions for national and international projects and
exhibitions to explore new forms of artistic expression while examining the various impacts
of the confluence of cultures on modern day visual art.
In the early stages of my career, when I joined the course in fine arts, there was a lot of
intrigue and excitement as I learnt new styles and art forms. Later there was the agony of
having to comply with certain ‘rules’ of art and while I did rebel against it, I found that the
compliance allowed me to be more competitive and made me obsessed with painting and to
aim for perfection. This led to a lot of revisions in my paintings and I learnt to study and
understand the intricacies and minutiae of art. Finally, I now have a sense of completeness
about where I stand regarding my choice of art styles.
My interest lies in creating a distinctive use of pointillism and experimenting with various
mediums and styles like stippling, pointillism and dot painting, while using different types of
paper and canvas. As I shift towards a more publicly engaged focus, looking beyond the
traditional gallery and art world model, I am increasingly focused on live sketching, mixing of
mediums and taking my art to more people - which feels like an organic extension of my
artistic skill and its focus on engagement."
