阿咧 / A-Lei

(1976~ )創作豐沛的他,計畫在有霧有雨的地方蓋一座怪獸美術館。



阿咧本名葉信泓 ,以個性十足的別稱自喻為「旁觀者」。“阿咧”源自日文”あれ”(那個是),他旁觀的是生活周遭親自經歷的一切,例如:都市道路的路障、建築空間內不顯眼的一隅、餐桌上隨意堆疊的餐盤等等。阿咧擅長以這些稍縱即逝、卻又無處不在的生活即景,作為靈光閃現的切入點,再以自身的感觸和無邊際的奇想,發展出自己的圖像宇宙。

阿咧作品最獨特之處,在其造型和情緒層面的強烈 “表現力”, 這種力量溯源於二:
一是自童年開始對於動漫、機器人和玩具的熱愛,賦予阿咧的作品各自展現截然不同的角色獨立性、和情節故事性。其次,受到奧地利表現主義畫家席勒(Egon Schiele, 1890 ~ 1918)作品中充滿神經質、壓迫感、和奇特扭曲的畫作視角等風格影響,也讓阿咧作品中的角色姿態和情感充滿張力。動漫和席勒,看似截然矛盾,卻都是挑動他情緒的觸媒。

阿咧熱愛玩具,特別是怪獸,他認為“怪獸”往往被刻板地視為正義的對立面,但他會不自覺站在怪獸的立場,對他們的處境表示同情,這反而導致他對怪獸的特殊喜愛。

阿咧希望,藉由創作出情緒感染力強烈的怪奇生物 ,挑戰人們對於貌似醜露、又不具價值的存在提出質疑,並打破對立。



YehHsin-Hong, knownsas A-Lei describes himself as “bystander”. The word “A-Lei” is derived from the Japanese word "あれ" (that is). What he observes is everything he has personally experienced around his life, such as: roadblocks on urban roads, inconspicuous corners in architectural spaces, or random stacking plates on dining tables. A-Lei is good at using these fleeting but ubiquitous life moments as the starting point for the flash of inspiration, and then developing his own image universe with his own feelings and boundless imagination.

The most unique aspect of A-Le’s work is the overwhelming expression in its shape and emotion. This power can be traced back to two inspirations. The first is his passion to animation, robots and toys since childhood, which resulting in individual and unique character with fancy plot story in his works. Secondly, influenced by the neurotic, oppressive and peculiarly distorted painting perspectives in the works of Austrian expressionist painter EgonSchiele(1890-​​1918), the posture and emotion of the characters in A-Le’s work s are full of tension. Anime and Schiller, seemingly contradictory, are both catalysts that stir his emotions.

A-Lei posses great love to toys, especially to monsters. He considers that "monsters" are often regarded as the evil opposite of justice, but he would unconsciously stand in the position of monsters and express sympathy for their states of being.
A-Lei hopes that by creating strange, grotesque creatures with strong emotional appeal, it will challenge people to question the seemingly ugly and worthless existence and break the opposition.
