Hui-Tang Lin had served as the director of the Taichung City Cultural Affairs Bureau and engaged in cultural administration for over two decades, witnessing the development and transformation of cultural construction in Taichung City, Taiwan. In recognition of his contributions, he received the Taichung City Government Senior Distinguished Artist Award in 2018. Mr. Lin possesses a profound understanding of the importance of culture and art in human life, and he assimilates these concepts into his unique representation of "Temmoku on Canvas". Whether depicting the passage of time (day and night), the use of space (the great universe), the wisdom of ancestors (I Ching), or modern technology (Avatar), his paintings convey the inseparable connection between humans and the vast universe.

Art is not only a language but also an idea, capable of expressing the complexity of meaning, the eternity of existence, and the expansion of space. Artists craft tangible or abstract visual images using diverse media, drawing from their life experiences to exhibit their thoughts, concepts, and emotions. Each artwork is a testament to the artist's lifestyle and cultural influences, encompassing a deep sense of humanistic care and the cultivation of multifaceted perspectives.
