Wang believes that humanity and nature are intricately intertwined together, created through the best usage of space.
I have a wide range of interests, which drives me to appreciate and enjoy art, motivating me to continue being enthusiastic toward all things. I’m not only an amateur artist but also an interior designer with a martial arts background. This is the first international contest that I’ve ever attended.
I’ve always loved art. Therefore, I’ve chosen to become an interior designer. I especially love to participate in charitable events, and was once the club director of Lions Clubs International. One of my paintings was also donated for charity at Art Revolution Taipei 2013.
Primeval nature and simplicity represent the start of humanities and cultures. Totem Design guards the essence of the original spirit by creating the aesthetic of space from conversations between humanity and nature, interpreting the liveliness of space and culture.
It is about the conversations between humanity, nature, and the harmony created through space. Let’s return to the starting point and dig deep into the conversation between human and space. Let’s view with different perspectives and lead life to walk into the path of beautiful harmony that consists of nature and delight.
I like designs that are carried out naturally through constant innovations, and inner conversations between one’s consciousness and senses.
Any design that can enrich the substance of life and allows you to accumulate both inner and outer energy is a good design.
I tend to utilize the creating model of oil painting to make organization. For instance, I include all elements such as color, shade, texture, line and structures to compose the melody of design. I mix and match all elements to create a sketch of a painting, and that’s my style and characteristics.
I start thinking from a dot, then it will extend to a line and expand into a surface. Then it will clash, stimulate, overlap, accumulate and eventually retroact onto space. Everything starts from simplicity to complex then complex back to simplicity. In the end, the most exquisite part stays.
Taiwan is a country that breeds energy. It has developed so far from the period of Dutch occupation, when Zheng ChengGong first arrived Taiwan; from Ching dynasty to the democracy Taiwan we recognize today. Taiwan’s rich energy in historical development clashes the land with great spirit that inspires many designs.
Design is the process of endless tries, resetting to zero and innovate again. Winning the MUSE Design Awards is no doubt a recognition and encouragement to myself and the team. We are on the right track, moving forward with each step becoming more confident and steadier.
Project “Beauty of the Dawn” is designed for a close friend who profession is a doctor. By choosing this project to attend the contest also represents my reflection on our friendship that has lasted for 40 years and the philosophy of human and nature. Through the contest, I felt that it had strengthen our friendship.
This project was designed for aesthetic clinic. The challenge lies in the display of desire and pursuit of beauty. Through connections from mythological stories, we aimed to truthfully present of the inner desire which required metaphorical design and concept.
Winning at the first international award we’ve ever attended is definitely a recognition and an encouragement to our team. Personally, winning the award has inspired me on learning and enhanced my cognition toward design.
Concept development, material utilization, and finishing the project.
Dutch scientist Jaap Van Etten proved that the land of Taiwan bores a great amount of mysterious energy. Citizens living on this land is highly creative and unique with the gathering of high energy.
In the future, more emphasis will be put on environmental protection, changing lifestyles and cultures which lead to the interweave and integration of various fields.
Be confident about your design and gain energy from different perspectives that will intrigue your conscious and sensation. Don’t worry too much about the reputation of your project. Instead, you should consistently enrich your knowledge about humanity and arts to lay the groundwork for good creation.
I suggest people to approach all kinds of art to cultivate connoisseurship and elevate your own temperament. Designers’ own depth and how they feel about beauty can give their projects liveliness and spirituality, and continue to carry out conversations with people through their projects.
I’m also a martial artist and have learned under master Tao for 37 years already! I’ve reached a high level at Tai Chi and other kinds of martial arts.
Thinking from a Buddhist perspective, creating canvas paintings, learning martial arts and charity events are all things that inspired me, for thinking determines everything, art fulfills life, martial arts strengthen your health and charity events are accesses to service.
Growing is the circulation of gaining experience, resetting to zero and starting over again. The key to success is to stay humble when learning over and over again. That’s what motivates us to grow.
Thank you, MUSE Design Awards, for giving me this opportunity and broadening my horizons.
TOTEM Interior Design combines aesthetics and space together to interpret space and culture together, creating conversations between us and nature.
