Van Ray Solo Show


2020. 12. 18 - 2021. 02. 28


GIN HUANG Gallery is happy to invite German artist Van Ray’s work to be exhibited in Taiwan, which is his very first solo exhibition “Van Ray Solo Show” in Asia. The artist uses antiques from the early 19th to 20th centuries as a base for creation, and uses the concept of time and history to combine with contemporary images. Let us take a time machine and recalling to the old objects preserve over from the past and discover the intersection of the new generation with them.



Van Ray does not present the works in a neat and clean way, he collected the antiques after a hundred years and preserved the various defect to bring the viewers the most direct experience with a pure and honest appearance. Just like his art, every scratch tells a story and every freckle of defects make it more perfect. Our flaws and incapabilities make us a better self instead of perfection itself.

The street is a display space for Street Art which participates in the daily life of the public and generates communication in the most genuine way. A large number of works have related to social changes, political relations, and criticism of aesthetic sense, and try to use their own opinion to question the existing. It could find some clues from unpretentious works of German artist, Van Ray.

“Exposure to art I feel I never had a choice. Graffiti was all I knew. There were no rules. It was all about keeping it real. That’s what counts for me until today!”- Van Ray


Van Ray, a German artist who started to learn graffiti when he was a teenager, he has never had an idea to become a professional artist, and he can't even imagine making a living as an artist. And he relied on pure passion, rebellious intentions, and persistence to develop his art to this day.
