Renowned as the father of modern ink painting and a pioneer in modern Chinese painting, 83 years old Liu Kuo-Sung is the greatest artist of our era. Born in 1932 in China and moved to Taiwan in 1949, Liu Kuo Sung did his study of fine art at Taiwan Normal University. Chinese Contemporary art master Chu Teh-Chun was the first to discover Liu Kuo-sungês exceptional talent in art during Chuês teaching in the university on western painting. He graduated in 1956 and established the –Fifth Moon Painting Society” in the same year whereby he was the principle founder.
Liu Kuo Sung has dedicated his life to the exploration and invention of non-traditional ink painting techniques, challenging the convention of contemporary ink painting and promoting its growth, raising ink painting to a new level in contemporary times. He incorporated western art concepts and techniques successfully placing ink painting on the path to modern innovation. Liu Kuo Sungês richly expressive artistic language, heavily influenced by Confucian, Buddhist and Daoist philosophy , places great emphasis on the balance between man and nature.
Throughout his career, Liu has been constantly experimenting with various painting techniques and to explore abstract forms to create an artistic style that is at once both oriental and modern. For half a century, Lou Kuo Sung has made great contributions to modern ink painting with influences spanning from Taiwan to Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia and China, revolutionising changes and development in the oriental system of painting.
