MR.OGAY


A Street artist from Taiwan, who called himself an angry young man filled with love. He had been invited to Japan, China, New York,Thailand etc. for graffiti. His motif of graffiti art mostly relates to naked man. His works are all around Taiwan since he stepped into the world of graffiti in 2000, therefore, he is the most accused street artist in Taiwan history.
Mr. OGAY considers art working is an honest way to face the true self. The viewers can find his direct, incisive and incontrovertible critique to Taiwan society in each piece of OGAY’s works. His graffiti works are awaking people’s respect to each other by the way demonstrating desires with humor, and taunting hypocritical morality. He uses “ugliness” as his tone of art language and develops a specific style. His works also try to consider the inner essence of humanity and society from another point of view by the re-interpretation to social system and the relationships of human and environment. There is no beautiful scene and content failed to express the ideas. He is always stepping on his path of “ugliness”. He is using the abundant visual language to make viewers happy, and let them see the unmentioned real ugly world. Perhaps it is not appropriate or impolite, and maybe even disgusting. However if you are the viewer, you will take more than one glance, for spitting on or realizing his ideas. And when you do that, you are more close to the “real world”.
