ABOUT THE ARTIST

Liu Kuo-Sung is a Taiwanese artist based in Shanghai, China and Taoyuan, Taiwan. He completed his art training in Taiwan Normal University. He is currently the Dean of Contemporary Ink Art at the Shanghai Institute of Visual Arts. In 1966, Liu was the recipient of a high-profile travel grant from the John D. Rockefeller III Foundation, which allowed him to travel to the United States. Liu is widely regarded as one of the earliest and most pivotal advocates for a distinctly modernist Chinese painting. He was the principal founder of the Wuyue Huahui (Fifth Moon Group), which played a key role in catalysing the modernist Chinese painting movement. With a career that has spanned more than six decades, Liu has held numerous solo international exhibitions and his works have been widely collected by leading international institutions.





INK MASTERS 2018

Over two weekends, explore the development of modern ink painting in Singapore and Taiwan through encounters with leading local ink artists Zhuang Shengtao and Hong Sek Chern, and renowned Taiwanese ink master, Liu Guosong. Some programmes will be conducted in Mandarin with simultaneous English translation.
