1961

Kang Muxiang was born in Tongxiao, Miaoli county, Taiwan.

   

 

He learned wood carving at the age of 13.

1986

He opened a woodcarving workshop in Sanyi and worked as a traditional craftsman.

   

1991

He travelled to China and South America, in search of inspiration.

   

2002

He spent a year on the uninhabited island of Guishan (Turtle Island ) in the northeast

 

of Taiwan. In the midst of this nature devastated by the passage of the typhoon,

 

he gave new life to driftwood, by creating his series of contemporary sculptures : Life

 

representing babies and their mother.

   
 

His creation process demonstrating the infinity of life, was found :

 

respect for the environment - transformation - innovation.

 

These three stages are now inherent in all of his works.

   

2013

Rebirth : with the help of prisoners, he transforms the discarded steel cables of

 

the elevators of Taipei 101, in embryonic forms, symbolizing the beauty of the  

 

coexistence of Man and the Earth.

   

2015

Ruyi Life  : this sculpture offered as a gift to the city of Karlsruhe, Germany, for

 

celebrating the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the city, and on permanent

 

display,  in the city center, symbolises the friendship between the two countries.

   
 

 He lives and works in Tongxiao, Taiwan.
