Image of Pen & Paper: Reach
Heading Taiwan’s growing street art scene, Reach is considered by many as a pioneer of Taiwanese graffiti. In 1998, Reach debuted with Toya-Taiwan Graffiti, a publication showcasing the capital’s artistic efforts via a dynamic blend of illustrations and colorful art pieces.
Elsewhere, Reach and his Soul Skool collective strive to promote public art by working with the government in stimulating alternative expression, transforming neglected walls into striking murals; the Jiuru Street Art Factory project being a recent example. In this episode of Pen & Paper, we get a closer look at Reach’s unique approach, one which merges traditional graffiti styles with influences from Asian anime and cartoons.
Reach will be participating at 2014′s POW! WOW! festival, meanwhile stay tuned for more from Reach via his recent project RADIKAL — a free trilingual magazine centered around street culture.
