Hou Chun-ming’s art boldly challenges taboos and stigmas, and is closely related to the political and social environment in Taiwan. His creativity and productivity are extremely strong, and often ritualistic in practice. From galleries and museums to theaters and bomb shelters, he’s art ranges from from mixed media prints to site-specific installations and performances, involving dancers as well as the audience.

Hou Chun-ming’s art captures the pulse of Taiwanese society. He has declared on more than one occasion: “My creation is all about solving various problems in life.”

In recent years, Hou Chun-ming’s art has turned to exploration of the self. The series, Eight Generations of the Hou Clan, is a form of autobiography and self-portrait, looking back at the personal experiences of different stages in the artist’s life. He borrows from traditional Chinese folklore and mythology, and ultimately blends truth and legend together.
