Yu Hsin Kao

My name is Yu Hsin Kao. The artwork you see before you is a self-portrait I drew when I was in the fifth grade. At that time, I had bangs. You might be wondering why only the flowers in the background, the eyes, and the mouth have vibrant colours in the entire composition? That’s because adding colour to the flowers helps accentuate the black-and-white portrayal of myself in the artwork. This allows viewers to differentiate between the portrait and the background. However, the eyes and mouth serve a purpose beyond differentiation. Humans need eyes to appreciate all the beautiful things in the world, and we need a mouth to express our thoughts and feelings to others. That’s why I specifically added beautiful colours to the eyes and mouth as well. I hope you all enjoy my artwork. Even if you don’t, that’s okay too! Because everyone has different preferences and you have your own choice!

TAIWANfest Toronto is grateful to be held on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, that is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We acknowledge our privilege to be gathered here, and commit to work with and be respectful to the Indigenous peoples of this land while we engage in meaningful conversations of culture and reconciliation.
