A new embankment mural work has been unveiled by the Taipei New Story!

The mural is centered on the theme “Immersed in Beauty, Striving for a Beautiful Future.” Designer Chen Yenchu explains that as the urban landscape in the neighborhood evolves, so does the interaction within the community. These transformations aim to ensure the blissful happiness of every resident in the present moment. Therefore, the designer utilizes geometric compositions (vertical, horizontal, 45-degree angles, circles) along with intricate layers of colors to create a montage-style space and setting. This presentation vividly conveys happiness and aspirations for the future.

According to the Taipei Hydraulics Engineering Office (Taipei HEO), in line with the community's desires, the designer utilized fresh, bright colors to create the mural. The small hands holding flowers symbolize the wish for a bright future for the locality. The mural artwork has been completed and is now located beneath the Chenggong Bridge on Tanmei Street, offering a vibrant interplay of colors that is expected to become a captivating highlight for the area.
The Tanmei Chenggong Bridge mural art was personally designed and created by artist Chen Yenchu.
The "Taipei New Mural Art Project," initiated by the Taipei HEO, has been underway since 2020, marking nearly four years of artistic endeavors. The project has enlisted renowned artists to collaboratively participate, leveraging their unique creative styles to craft embankment walls that integrate local highlights. The beautification efforts from the years 2022 to 2023 have extended to various locations along the riverbanks, encompassing districts such as Wanhua, Songshan, Shilin, Neihu, and Wenshan. Together, these artistic endeavors have forged a fresh chapter in Taipei's riverside aesthetics.
