Heading Taiwan’s growing street art scene, Reach is considered by many as a pioneer of Taiwanese graffiti. In 1998, Reach debuted with Toya-Taiwan Graffiti, a publication showcasing the capital’s artistic efforts via a dynamic blend of illustrations and colorful art pieces. Elsewhere, Reach and his Soul Skool collective strive to promote public art by working with the government in stimulating alternative expression, transforming neglected walls into striking murals; the Jiuru Street Art Factory project being a recent example.

Reach will be participating at 2014’s POW! WOW! festival, meanwhile stay tuned for more from Reach via his recent project RADIKAL — a free trilingual magazine centered around street culture.
