Florentijn Hofman was born in 1977 in the Netherlands. He is known for his series of large-scale sculpture works of the yellow rubber ducks, touring the waters of many countries around the world and recalling the memories of innocence in everybody's childhood. Rubber duck first came to Taiwan in 2013 for participating in the first Taoyuan Land Art Festival.
