Three Taiwanese and international artists, Yeh Yi-Li, Monica Miceli, Román Ramírez, are invited to showcase their artworks in this exhibition. Influenced by their own cultures, they use different mediums to build their own imaginary worlds.

Monica Miceli, was born in Tripoli, Libya, and now currently lives in Italy. She began her career as an illustrator of children's books, publishing with San Paolo, Patmos and Negebauer, and also exhibiting in various cities of Italy. Presently she dedicates herself to creating objects and sculptures by recycling wood, pieces of plastic, rusty iron and anything else she finds along the beaches after the storms. It is amazing how she works between illustration and sculpture. Monica Miceli has exhibited at Fabbrica del Vapore in Milan with a solo exhibition titled A (R) RIVA (2015), Vinoria, Chiavari (2014), Galata Museo del Mare, Genoa (2014), Artelier, Palazzo Ducale, Genoa (2013).

Yeh Yi-Li, born in Taiwan, graduated from Taipei National University of Art. Recently she has worked in videos, sculptures, performance arts, role-playing and interactive installations. She derives inspirations from subculture and pop culture, using different characters to convey her thoughts and explore the different facets of society. She uses ceramic materials to make sculptures, and also adds certain common objects or model toys to them, making these sculptures more interesting. She has enjoyed the rich experience of being an international artist-in-residence, and exhibited in various countries such as Korea, America, China, France, Russian and so on. Her works are collected by personal collectors as well as by Taiwan Art Bank and the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts.

Roman Ramirez was born in Melilla la Vieja in Spain and graduated from Melilla Art School. Before he enrolled in art school, he was mostly self-taught in both sculpture and painting. He won many prizes in Melilla and has collaborated with certain magazine companies in illustrating. Roman Ramirez’s works are full of Spanish influence. Ramirez has derived inspirations from his life experiences and culture background. Using watercolors and ink, he paints his daily life in a warm way.
