優席夫的創作非常多元,從音樂、攝影一直延伸到繪畫。其作品以用色大膽、主題活潑鮮明為特色,他專注在用色強烈且具戲劇張力的效果上創作,通常在簡單的視覺上,往往還透露了對人性與社會議題的見解,尤其巧妙的運用了東西方元素的特質,作品深受歐亞人士的喜愛. 目前收購他畫作的收藏家已遍及了巴西、澳洲、香港、英國、西班牙、加拿大、台灣、新加坡、法國、韓國、瑞典等地。

Yosifu was born in the village of Matailing, Taiwan and belongs to the Amis tribe of indigenous people found in the east of the island.  He now lives and works main in Edinburgh in Scotland, and has exhibited successfully in both Europe and Asia.  He is one of only a very few artists promoting Taiwan indigenous culture in Europe.

Yosifu's varied creative talents encompass music, photography and painting.  His bright vibrant style has its roots in indigenous and naive forms of artwork and is a fusion of Western and Asian styles and techniques.  He focuses on the strong use of colours to dramatic effect, with a simple facade often hiding more serious observations or social commentary. His work has become popular internationally, and is currently held by private collectors from Scotland, England, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Sweden.

Yosifu has been an invited artist to exhibit at Art Taipei International Art Fair, as well as at Taipei International Airport.  He is deeply committed to using art as an educational tool, and has been invited to teach at the prestigious Stanley Yen Cultural Foundation Art Summer School and twice to speak at TEDx Taipei.  He has held workshops and lectures at several schools and universities to inspire the younger generations, and to promote art and the culture and increase awareness and understanding of the indigenous tribes of Taiwan.  Recent projects include commissioned artwork for an album cover, the creation of the main image for a movie poster, a collaboration with designers for a special line of Yosifu clothing featuring his artwork, and providing the stage backdrop for the L'Oréal hair show in Dubai.
