The artist YANG En-Sheng is part of the first generation of Taiwan’s ecological artists. The style of his work is realistic and is mostly focused on natural environments as a subject, with a particular focus on birds. In the 90s, he designed a series of stamps for the post office, and he has done much to advance watercolor theory in Taiwan, having published many books on the subject. Yang’s creative philosophy is, “Art is beauty, science is true, conservation is benevolence.” Yang creates an educational system by combining watercolors and environmental philosophy, through which he has profoundly influenced both art and conservation. His work, “Longmen Bay” depicts the shape of the Longmen Bay aqueduct, as it curves through the scene like calligraphy. The green mountains, open sky, and water’s surface blend and conform with one another, revealing the harmonious coexistence of all things together on Earth.
