Shen, Yu-Jung received his undergraduate degree in costume design at the prestigious Taipei National University of the Arts (TNUA). From 2009-2013, he studied with the most famous Taiwan costume designer, Chin, Ping-Ping. For nearly three years he had the honor of assisting Professor Chin on a variety of university and professional productions. After graduating from college and then serving his country in the military, in 2015 he began working for the well-known company KA&G Design Co. as a design assistant. His responsibilities included research, sketching, millinery, crafts, and the creation of costumes for nearly 20 productions of immense variety: government institutions’ show, famous Taiwanese Opera companies, video-game conferences, and a series of superstars’ costumes.
Yu-Jung is presently self-studying western theatre and culture in the United States, and is continuing his artist life of painting, landscaping, sculpture, and writing as he prepares for advanced study in Design.
Pool (no water) is his first costume design. He collaborated, according to him, with the most extraordinary team of young artists in TNUA during that time. This production had the distinction of being the first “ticketed” performance of this play, and the first production permitted by Mark Ravenhill’s publisher to be translated into Chinese from the original English. Mr. Shen wants to recognize the extraordinary effort by the lovely professional draper and tailor at the TNUA Costume Shop for all of their beautiful work on this production.
