Ted Pigott is from Northwest Indiana, just outside of Chicago, in the American Midwest. After graduating cum laude from DePauw University with a degree in English Composition, he lived in New York City, traveled throughout Europe, and worked and traveled in several parts of Asia, including China, Tibet, and India.
He is now based in Taipei, a city he has grown to love during his eighteen years here. These days, when he’s not exploring Taipei’s back alleys and leafy lanes on his bicycle, he can be found in the city’s cafés and restaurants, eating and drawing, especially at lunchtime.
As an artist, he believes these things are true: Draw what you see. Draw what you love, and love what you draw. Share your work. Don’t think—just draw. Every day is better when you draw.
