This is Tainan City in 1945. It was drawn by myself from hundreds of old photos and walks around what remains. It's a twin to the drawing of central Taipei I made a couple of years ago. I wanted to create a unique view of the city moments before it changed forever and large parts were destroyed. I've enjoyed getting to know this city. The area of old Taipei I drew was very planned and modern while the center of Tainan is full of atmospheric winding lanes. A lot of the architecture from the Qing and Japanese eras was beautiful too and enjoyable to draw. My favorite is the high court building, which I'm happy still exists, and the Miyako Theater, which sadly doesn't. This is probably my most painstaking work to date. It took many months to both find the old pictures and draw it. All will be numbered and signed. The series numbers 60 in total, of which more than half have already sold

Printed on: 

Fine art paper. This paper is acid free, gallery quality, and uses archival inks. The sharpness, contrast and texture are excellent. It is robust and thick. With the right care these prints will last well beyond 100 years in pristine condition. 


I ship from Taiwan via recorded airmail. It'll be packaged in a sturdy tube with a plastic sleeve. Shipping to N America or Europe usually takes just under two weeks.
