Roy Chu was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan, where he also trained as a graphic designer. He has moved to Melbourne in 1998 and received his BFA in Media Art at RMIT University. In 2014 he gained a Master in Contemporary Art in VCA, Melbourne University. Roy has been working as image creator in advertising since 2005.
In his career, Roy has had the opportunity to work with some of Australia’s most renowned photographers and artists. He has been able to establish strong networks both in art and advertising through this work experience.
Roy believes art and ideas come before the technical. We are now living in a fast and impatient world, where young creators have more access to sophisticated equipment and opportunities to work in creative fields. To meet the challenges of a competitive world, creative training isn’t satisfactorily served by a formal education system. Roy sees the gap and has founded ACAI to connect some true masters to supply the missing input in education and training.
