Hallo, I'm Iris ( Mu-Yu Lin )
Since moving to the Netherlands, many people have asked me, what is Taiwanese culture?
This serie of paintings " Taiwan Vibes" presents the Taiwanese culture I have seen.
Sometimes the prejudices are so strong, and people can't see the image that match their prejudices, resulting in the inability to appreciate the local culture.
In a world of free speech, it's normal to have each's own opinion.
I sincerely hope Taiwan Vibes open the discussion about Taiwanese culture, so that Taiwan image becomes more and more visible internationally.
