TAICHUNG CITY, Taiwan
(TraNews) – It is hard to use words to describe the art in Taiwan. It is harder to see through specific feature when you visit a spot. However, the Art Museum District in Taichung attracts many people coming to experience the beauty of the place. Due to the city development plan, the area will not remain the same after 10 years.
When you walk into teacher Balin’s painting classroom, you can see a beautiful yard and jazz music coming from the room. Balin leaded me into the classroom, and there were tons of paintings by the students. Falling in love with this district, teacher Balin decided to move in 7 years ago. The place possesses both peace and lively features. At first, he didn’t plan to teach students painting. By chances, he started to use his profession to transmit his idea and perspectives of art to more people.
Balin told me that the broad definition of art is life. If you want to define it narrowly, you can say art is how you present life. Every little thing in the district that Balin lives becomes his inspiration. Balin creates not only painting, but also sculptures, calligraphy and story. Balin interprets art in many different ways.
When Balin first moved into the district, he wanted a painting space. Little did he realized that he would start teaching paintings afterward. This simple fact further explains the charming feature of the Art Museum District.
Balin’s passion to life has never faded away with time, and there is no expiration date. If you spend some time in this district, you can feel the great and artistic atmosphere. It is greatly suggest that after you have meal next time, spend some time stroll in this district and breathe in the fine scent of art.
