Liu Kuo-sung (Liu Guosong), respected as the Father of Modern Ink Painting by the art worlds of Taiwan and China, has passionately promoted modern ink painting with a religious zeal. Liu Kuo-sung’s faith is art, and modern ink paintings are his scripture. Over the last sixty years, Liu has journeyed around the world in art exhibitions and academic seminars, bringing his scripture wherever he went, in the true spirit of a missionary.
