Biographical Text

Vincent J.F. Huang is a visual artist. He received his MFA from Gray's School of Art in Scotland in 2000 and worked in the department of visual communications in ShuTe University of Taiwan, as a senior art lecturer, from 2001 to 2006. Since 2010, Vincent J.F. Huang began working with Tuvalu. He represented Tuvalu as an official delegate to participate in the UNFCCC COP 18 in Doha and COP 19 in Warsaw. In the following year, Huang represented Tuvalu at the 55th Venice Biennale and took part in The Arctic Circle program. His international engagement through artistic expression eventually earned him domestic recognition as he received the Presidential Cultural Award in 2013, the most prestigious cultural award in Taiwan. Vincent J.F. Huang devotes much of his artistic efforts into environmental issues relevant to people’s everyday lives. He applies the idea of social sculpture through his dedication to bringing issues into an art campaign involving the public’s participation while aiming to raise attention to climate change. Huang’s exhibitions have extended to many parts of the world: UK, USA, Germany, Italy, China, Australia, the Middle East, South America, Tuvalu and Taiwan.
