Wu, Chi-Tsung  was born in 1981 in Taipei. Wu received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Taipei National University of the Arts in 2004. He currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan and Berlin, Germany.

His work, in which he devotes great attention to the methods used in producing and interpreting images, spans across different media, including photography, video, installation art, painting and set design. He combines traditions and contemporary art forms from the East and the West. Daily objects and phenomena are great inspiration for his work, what he transforms into poetic imagery.

He received the top prize of the Taipei Arts Award (2003), short-listed for the “Artes Mundi” (2006), received “WRO Media Art Biannual” (2013) – Award of Critics and Editors of Art Magazines”, and short-listed for the “Prudential Eye Awards” (2015).



致力於攝影、錄像、裝置、繪畫與舞台設計, 其創作媒體媒材多元,發想自日常生活中平凡的材料與現象,轉換出充滿詩意的想像空間。關注影像及觀看本質的探討,並融合東西方傳統與現當代藝術形式。

曾獲台北美術獎首獎(2003)、波蘭媒體藝術雙年展(WRO,2013) 藝評與藝術雜誌編輯獎,並入圍英國世界藝術獎(Artes Mundi, 2006)、英國保誠當代藝術獎(Prudential Eye Awards, 2015)。
