Oil paint and clay
This oil painting is an attempt to capture the image of an ideal forest. The four hands can be used to carry something. They can also be used as shades to shelter from the rain or sun while one rests, reads or simply admires the lovely grass.
Feet, which are featured in the clay pieces, represent the anchor of Taiwan D.B. Art Collective. Like humans relying on both feet to function, vehicles need four wheels to move and houses need four structural posts to be erected.

“I want to paint a person riding a horse.” Wu Bo-Chun was diagnosed with childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematosus at the age of 10. After his condition is under control, the first thing he thought of doing was to paint. He wanted to paint a person riding a horse. At such a young age, he already set his mind on creating realistic paintings.
He practiced painting Mona Lisa, wanting to be as good as Leonardo da Vinci so that he could become a world famous artist, and people would befriend him.
He has been painting non-stop, trying to create realistic works that capture the form, light, shadow and colors of reality. It is his hope that one day, he could paint the future he dreams of.
