Michael Lin graduated from the Fine Art Department of The Design Centre in Pasadena, California. Returning to Taiwan in 1993, he developed what would go on to define the core of his artistic concerns, a reflection on Asian tradition, ornamentation and architecture and the practice of art and life.
Since 1999, he has exhibited extensively in Europe and he also has been invited to make public commissions worldwide. Lin’s public works can be seen at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary art, Kanazawa, Japan; the Kunstlinie Theater/Art Center, Almere, The Netherlands; the Rogaland School of Art, Stavanger, Norway; L’ecole des Cigales, Beausoleil, France; and recently inaugurated in June 2008, a mural at the Pierre De Geyterstraat, for the City of Gent, Belgium.
