The Fleshy Fairytales of Peihang Huang

I recently came across the amazing (and young!) Taiwanese artist PEIHANG HUANG 黃沛涵 . She talks about her art being a representation of the collision of Chinese, Japanese and American cultures – something I experienced first-hand when in Taiwan last year.

She says: “My work : Fleshy Fairytale series, of all those merely nude figures are based on barbie dolls and puppets, it links to the strong mixed influence of Chinese, Japanese and American culture to Taiwan, which refers to the issue of identity of my culture; and also focusing on several topics and events that is important in our life, such as death/life/ love/ beauty/body/timing, I believe puppets are the perfect figure to project human behaviors and philosophies.”
