Poster-of-Liao Shiou-Ping-Exhibition

Because of his print masterpieces and outstanding achievements in the education and promotion of the art of printmaking, Liao is reputed as “Father of Modern Printmaking in Taiwan”, who has won a lot of major international awards and whose works have been collected by major art museums at home and abroad. Undoubtedly, Liao’s print works are already well-known and well-discussed in Taiwan. However, it is only by looking at the full picture of Liao’s life as an artist that we can better understand this master and his art and then have deeper appreciation of its soul-touching beauty. This exhibition displays over 100 works created by Liao using different kinds of media such as print, oil painting and sketching. It is the first exhibition in Taiwan that takes an unprecedentedly comprehensive retrospective of Liao’s art, presenting a symphony of artistic creativity and life wisdom in front of viewers.
