American expat artist Ted Pigott rekindled his love for drawing while doodling in his sketchbook at cafes and restaurants during his lunch break at his job as a communications specialist years ago in Taipei. Now, he frequently draws scenes he sees at these cafes — a ketchup bottle or a potted plant. Since 2014, he’s been drawing every single beer he’s ever drank from Taiwan to Japan to the US and a selection of his work will be on display at craft beer bar Hop In in Taoyuan starting tomorrow. The exhibition, Beer Here Now, derives its title from Ram Das’s book on spirituality, Be Here Now, which argues that you should always be present in the moment. Likewise, Pigott’s drawings beckon viewers to savor every hop as they drink their beer.
