Lucas Paixao (Brazil) Studying at Taipei National University of the Art

【Student Profile】 (November, 2015)

Name: Lucas Paixao
Country: Brazil
University: Taipei National University of the Art
Program: Master program at the department of fine art

My name is Lucas Paixao, I am a student of the second year in the Master Program of Fine art department at National Taipei University of the arts. I Decided to come to Taiwan because I always liked the diversity of Taiwanese culture.

Some people get shocked when I say I was able to know Taiwan and learn Chinese through Idol Dramas, Movies and Comics, but I think it`s really an interesting paradox, I feel like spreading Taiwan pop Culture for Taiwanese people.

Taiwan has a lot of great visual artists, Comic Artists and Designers, I feel really blessed to be able to study among them.
