“Photography is my way of communicating with the world.”

Wang Chien-Yang is fascinated with the camera’s ability to directly capture a “present progress.” Through photography, he conveys his feelings toward the world as well as uses it as a starting point to practice his artistic dreams. In 2009, he began to work on the House series, which pursued the wings for his dreams to take flight. After receiving the Seiichi Kamei Jury Award at Geisai Taiwan#1, he embarked on his road to art, and went on to win countless international photography competitions, such as First Prize in the general category of Fine Art at the International Photography Awards in the United States, Second Place in the category of Performing Art at France’s Prix de la Photographie, Paris (PX3), and the Award for Excellence at JPS-Japan Photographers Society- Photo Competition. Wang’s courage in pursuing his own dreams led him to the world stage of international photography. He not only received awards and recognition in photography, but also won first place at Geisai Taiwan#2 for his series of oil paintings, Toys.

In 2011, Wang was invited to join Ah Shin, Aaron Nieh, NO2GOOD, and Johan Ku in hosting Stay Real Dreams – A Contemporary Art Exhibition at Huashan Creative Park. Over a 3 months period, the exhibition attracted a total of 90,000 visitors, elevating his popularity and momentum to even greater heights! The photography work of the House series has also received invitations to be exhibited at Taipei, Tokyo, San Diego, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Melbourne, and other locations.
