Turning beer cans into art

文字-A A +A

Chen You-zong’s is a member of the ‘Eight Generals’ at the Golden Lotus Temple in Madou Dist., Tainan. The story of his creative genius is a rather smoky one! One day while drinking, he and his friends needed an ashtray, and it was then that Chen You-zong decided to fashion an ashtray from an empty beer can. His friends were pleasantly surprised and complemented him on his ingenuity. This encouragement was the catalyst that fueled Chen You-zong’s aluminum-can art career. Chen You-zong’s involvement in the temple and the Eight Generals means that a large part of his work centers around these areas.

Surprisingly, after he started turning empty beer cans into pieces of art, he almost completely stopped drinking, so nowadays the empty beer cans are provided by friends. Chen You-zong’s work really began being noticed after he started attending street activities where he could display his work. Recently, Huji Temple in Madou began fundraising activities in order to carry out much needed restoration work to the temple. Chen You-zong kindly put some of his work on sale at one such event giving all proceeds to the temple.
