Taiwan You Have My Back
The custom of pasting rice paper on walls went as far back as the Qin dynasty; smoother linen fibres later replaced rice so that painting and printing on paper became easier. By the 12th Century, the skill of papermaking had spread to the West through the Silk Route. In 2020, Lunar New Year is about to start a new cycle for the zodiac signs with the Year of the Rat. While most people are familiar with the 12 animal signs, artist Kuan-Chih Su of Taiwan created his own wallpaper with inspiration from the history of the wallpapers, and with elements from each of the 12 animals. Paper Fantasy will be displayed as a backdrop on the Lunar Stage. Can you find all the elements of the 12 zodiac animals?

Père Tanguy - Vincent van Gogh
In the early days, chiyo-e paper was used purely for packaging. In the 19th century, when chiyo-e was wrapped around ukiyo-e artworks and sent to Europe for exhibitions, it took the Western world by storm. Chiyo-e and ukiyo-e patterns appear in Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh’s work, Portrait of Père Tanguy, allowing us to see the way art traverses through culture and creates connections from all corners of the world.
