顏頂生是活躍於80年代獨樹一格的畫家,更是早期隸屬於南台灣新風格的畫家之一,作品風格質樸、內斂,看似隨意、卻蘊含無限生機,創作對於顏頂生而言,經常是另一種生命形塑及自我解放,峰迴路轉後才見柳暗花明又一村的境地。

Yen Ding-Sheng is a painter who has a style of his own. He was active in 1980s and belonged to New Painting Style Association in southern Taiwan in the early days. His simple, unadorned and restrained style is seemingly at will but expresses infinite vitality. To Yen, artistic creation is another kind of life shaping and self-liberation, in which it manifests a state that some good may come out of any gloomy situation after the path winds along mountain ridges.
