BCS invited artist CHOU Chien-Pang and his project, Art Bus—a traveling van with artists, artworks, and creative ideas as passengers—to join the local farmer’s market. The inside of the van served as an exhibition space, and the exterior a canvas for doodling and writing messages. CHOU’s stories and experiences traveling in Taiwan and other countries came into life via the presence and presentation of Art Bus.
Chou attempts to examine the problems that a metropolitan lifestyle lead- heavy load of works, distance in our relationships. Therefore, He used his free time to teach children drawing and share his passion for art. He searches the possibilities in humanity and hopes people will reconnect with each other through art; so the multitude will not suffer from alienation!
