Artist Biography

Xie Zheng Xian Asen is an artist based in Taiwan. His creative philosophy is to seek to promote truth, goodness, beauty and love, and to improve body, mind and soul. He believes painting is a joy, and what can relieve stress is the pursuit of dreams. He believes you can slow down your pace, take a closer look at the surrounding scenery and savor the beautiful humanities and arts.

Artist Statement

In recent years, I have been researching how many styles and features the streetscape presents. Why? Because I travel between these cities and towns in my daily life. I found that light and shadow present different styles in different times and spaces in the city. After the epidemic, people are still working hard to live, which moved me to record it with a brush

To see more of his work, Xie Zheng Xian Asen can be reached via his Email.

The gallery’s competition for December 2021 was the 12th Annual “CityScapes” Online Art Competition. 2D and 3D, artists, (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s January 2022 online group art exhibition.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “CityScapes” theme by submitting their best abstract or representational art for this competition. The submission process and competition for the artists began in November 2021 and concluded on December 27, 2021.

The gallery received 551 entries from 22 different countries from around the world, as well as from 30 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into two media categories: Painting & Other Media and Photography & Digital Art categories.  Due to limited 3 Dimensional entries in this competition, all 3D artwork will be included in the Painting & Other Media category. In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from all the media categories.

The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.

All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of January 2022. Thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives.

Congratulations to our artists who made our 12th Annual “CityScapes” Art Exhibition so successful this month. At any time, we invite our winning artists and other interested visitors to link their websites to the Gallery’s archive page for further ongoing promotion.

Special Merit Award Category – These are the artists and their artwork which we felt could easily have been placed higher but due to the size constraints in each media category, this art was placed in this special category.  Any of the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with the best art that we selected for the top tiers.
