陳泓圻,1991年生於臺灣臺南,2013年畢業於國立臺北藝術大學美術學系,2016年春夏學期赴捷克布拉格藝術學院(Academy of Fine Arts in Prague),2017於國立臺北藝術大學美術學系取得碩士學位。創作上以平面繪畫作品為主,也專注於繪畫與絹印技法結合的表現。創作議題以自身身份男同性戀者出發,連結欲望做為創作的起始點,以此為主軸,發展出不同支線的系列作品和創作形式。探討欲望的各種面向,與面對欲望的節制和壓抑;特別著重於同志文化,討論社會結構體制下的性少數族群、男同志身體的個人經驗與情慾束縛,情色與色情的曖昧關係、欲望與視覺的連結,禁忌與規訓的生產之於衣櫃存在的徒勞。

Chen Hung-Chi is a Taiwanese artist living and working in Taipei, graduated from Taipei National University of the Arts (MFA&BFA). His work explores the theme of desire, the intimacy of the viewer's relationship to the male body. Chen uses bright colors and sensual images to trigger and evoke the inner lust of the viewers. His works are often edgy, at times racy and fun, but always strongly reflecting his personal experience and perspective within the gay community. He is fascinated by the manifold approaches in which desire may be represented within painting.
