Born in 1989 in Changhua County, Chia-Che Chang graduated in 2016 from the Institute of Painting and Calligraphy at the National Taiwan University of Arts.
Having a strong background both in painting and calligraphy, the artist studied in Japan for one year as an exchange student at the Calligraphy Department of Daito Bunka University. His works internalize the classical aesthetic of Chinese calligraphy,the characters evolve into means of concern and practice, examining nowadays written language within the complexity and ambiguity of the nationalism and globalization contexts, considering the dialectic between text, image, and code. In the Anthropocene of the Information Age the recording tools, along with technological advancement, are shaping the text in different forms, holding the pen of the record writing habits, the graphical and the letter symbols, as well as the awareness about input method keyboards. They exist within the human reading skills, spreading words under the eye of machinery and technology. If the space-time evidence is still effective, then it is necessary to re-examine how writing and reading are envisioned. Tradition and avant-garde have also become tools of translation and cohesion, rather than confronting each other.
