Hou Chun Ming, born in Liuchiao Township, Chiayi County, Taiwan in 1963. A graduate from the National Arts Academy (Now Taipei National University of the Arts), He was first known by his installations and woodcut prints during the 90s that seriously challenged the status quo of Taiwanese politics and social taboos at the time through his uncanny and ritualistic provocations. Hou Chun Ming was invited twice to attend the Venice Biennale in 1995 and 2013, respectively. In recent years, he has been focusing on a quest of exploring the faiths and spirits of Taiwanese cultures through both sketches and writings. The current “The Asian Father Interview Project” is born out of this period of a spiritual journey towards one’s innermost self. It has been going on since 2008 and has held exhibitions in Yokohama, Taipei, Taichung, Bangkok, Chiayi and Hong Kong. His most recent work “Body Map” once again uses ethnographic research techniques and methodologies to transform bodily desires into artistic expressions.

He published several books:“Anecdotes about Spirits and Immortals” by China Times Publishing; “A Suicide Message of Dying on Love at Age 36” by Locus Publishing; “Grain Rain‧Amorous Affair“ by Cans Art; “The Caution in Mirror“ by Psygarden Publishing : “Legend Hou’s Sin & Punishment“ by Garden City Publishing; “Suffer from Desires :Hou Chun Ming's Free Drawing“  by Psygarden Publishing.
