In world art history, the renowned artists may not be highly commended to be art masters if they did not work several print creations in their whole life. The reason is that print art is one of the essential media in which art masters are interested. In the West, for example, the art masters are Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Antoni Tàpies, and Eduardo Chillida. In the East, from the Chinese-French respected art masters like Zao Wou-Ki and Chu Teh-Chun to the members at Fifth Moon Group or Ton Fon Art Group as Hsiao Chin, Wu Hao and Chen Ting-Shih, print art have been regarded as their remarkable achievement.

In “Evolution of Art Duplicates- The Exhibition of Taiwanese Contemporary Print Art”, print is the only art medium displayed by a university printmaker professor Chia-Yu Chang, with 6 outstanding young printmakers of marked individuality as Tek-Khean Lee, Yi-Lung Lin, Wei Hsu, Chun-Yuan Huang, Chia-Hao Yeh, Chee-Hoe Yow. All of us have studied print art for many years. Print is an unusual art medium which produces a good number of duplicates, so we look forward this art will attract more and more art lovers.

We sincerely hope that art can be found out easily in the daily life, and the art atmosphere with culture will penetrate and pervade in Taiwanese society.
