TAICHUNG, TAIWAN (TraNews) – Van Gogh’s abstract paintings and Chu Ko’s copper sculptures artistically decorate the grassed parkways of Taichung and impart a sense of artistic imagination.

Jingguo Parkway extends from the north head of National Museum of Nature Science to the south end of National Fine Arts Museum, with a total length of 1.7 kilometers, and runs across several major roads, including Taichung Port Road, Gongyi Road, Xiangshang Road and Wuquan West Road. The north head of Jingguo Parkway is also known as “Van Gogh Art Sqaure,” which is currently adopted by the Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC. The square feature a number of abstract paintings created by Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch post-impressionist painter.

Van Gogh’s bold and emotional paintings are born of surreal imagination and are full of depth. A walk down here is like roaming in the outdoor version of Van Gogh Museum. Famous works of his that are on display includes “Starry Night over the Rhone”, “The Starry Night”, “Wheat Field with Crows”, “Harvest at La Cra”, “Haystacks under a Rainy Sky”, “Sunflowers”, “Irises”, etc.

In the middle of the square, an enormous three-dimensional sculpture was known as “Taichung City Government Centennial Establishment Monument.” This towering sculpture was designed by Chu Ko, an ancient Chinese art historian from the National Palace Museum, on the basis of Chinese cursive graphic character “Zhong”, literally “central”, transforming a two-dimensional character into a three-dimensional ideogram.
