Surreal painted scenes from everyday life by Shih Yung-Chun

Taipei-based artist Shih Yung-Chun paints scenes from everyday life, taking inspiration from hundreds of photographs, but there’s an element of the bizarre in all his crafted narratives – his subjects always seem to occupy themselves with strange activities. The truth, so it would seem, doesn’t exist. Which is why Yung-Chun names his ongoing series, Soap Opera.

Although plucked from his imagination, Yung-Chun’s paintings seem to highlight everything that is wrong with our culture today – from overuse of the internet to our general social ills, it’s an impressive series of work, with many scenes set in his own house and with his white French bulldog, who makes the occasional appearance.
