Germain Canon (b.1989, Belgium) is an artist based in Taiwan. Originally trained as an architect in Brussels, he has since developed a creative career beyond architecture, using writing, painting, and installations as medium. His artworks are attempts to find a sense of place within complex contemporary landscapes, such as climate change or housing shortages. In 2019, he has illustrated the new Taiwanese edition of Osamu Dazai’s “No longer Human” (人間失格). Recent exhibitions were in Kaoshiung (2023) and Taipei (2021)

Germain Canon(生於 1989 年,比利時)是常駐台灣的藝術家。 他最初在布魯塞爾接受建築師培訓,此後發展了建築之外的創造性職業,使用寫作、繪畫和裝置媒體。 他的作品試圖在復雜的當代景觀中找到一種地方感,例如氣候變化或住房短缺。

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。他最近的個展在台北(濕地, 2021)跟高雄(駁二, 2023​)舉行。
