Originary from Taipei, Taiwan Hui-Chu Ying is currently an Associate Professor at the Myers School of Art, University of Akron, USA. She completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts from the San Jose State University, and received an M.F.A. from West Texas State University, 1987.

Ying uses I-Ching, the Chinese book of changes, as the basis for her creative process. In her prints, multiple woodblocks and silk screens are used to build up layers. Designs and motifs are generated from historical and contemporary art sources. The elements are chosen randomly and combined to make the image a whole. She uses a variety of media combining painting, drawing, etching, screen-printing, relief printing, and collages.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
