Lin’s paintings integrate the cultures from both where he was born in, Taiwan, as well as the place he has resided in for over a decade, Brazil. Showcasing twenty-six recent paintings from 2020 to 2021, his works depict Brazilian graffiti and Asian lines pulling the focus to the artistic movements of Brazil — juxtaposing, merging and breaking down generic elements such as lines, circles, and colour blocks to combine rudimentary painting components.
The steps taken to create for the artist is on answering the questions of the process itself: how, what and the meaning of the painting. Upon appreciating his works, Lin believes in pursuing the answering these questions unintentionally, letting the perceived experiences and time within the paintings do the talking. The concept is especially demonstrated in one of his most recent works, Do whatever you want here (2021), in which Yi-Hsuan reworks an initial piece, painting over with distinct rectangular shapes.
