Germain Canon (甘捷曼) was born in Belgium in 1989, where he studied visual arts and architecture.

After working in Brussels, he moved to Taipei in 2014, where works as a painter, architect, and photographer.

He uses painting as a complement to architecture to explore the spatial and temporal complexity of contemporary landscapes.

For over 15 years, he has specialized in black ink painting, for its flowing, lively character, always in tension with the space of the paper.

He has received many commissions in Taiwan and abroad, most importantly for the 2019 cover for the Taiwanese edition of " 人間失格 - No longer human". 

甘捷曼 (Germain Canon),1989年出生於比利時,主修繪畫和建築。

在布魯塞爾從業幾年後,他在2014年移居台北,以畫家,建築師及攝影師諸多身份在此扎根。

他運用繪畫輔佐建築來探討當代景觀的暫時性及複雜性。

十五年來,他專注於水墨畫:運用其流動、活潑的特性去彰顯此媒介與紙所產生的拉扯。他在國內外擁有許多作品的露出,其中包含2019年中文版–人間失格的封面設計.
