Respected as the Father of Modern Ink Painting, Liu Kuo-sung has passionately promoted modern ink painting with religious zeal. Liu’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.

In his youth, Liu Kuo-sung was once slandered as a traitor to art. He challenged both conservatives of traditional Chinese ink painting, as well as blind followers of modern Western painting, and instead forged his own path. With modern ink painting on the rise, Liu has finally been recognized for his contributions to the genre. Liu’s artworks have since entered the spotlight of the art market, and have become exceptionally difficult to acquire.

In order to continue promoting Liu Kuo-sung’s art, and also to share his achievements with more art lovers, Loftyart Gallery decided to produce a series of autographed handmade limited edition prints. The prints are to become a missionary’s scriptures, for sharing with the world. This notion is recognized by Liu himself, and under his authorization, supervision, and kind guidance, Loftyart commissioned a professional printmaking studio to create a series of ten prints in woodblock, etching, and silkscreen prints, and received critical-acclaim upon the prints’ release in late 2014.

In 2015, we are proud to present a second series of ten prints, featuring lithography in addition to woodblock, etching, and silkscreen printing. We believe that the prints, with strong support by Liu Kuo-sung, will not only help art lovers capture the spirit of Liu’s original artworks, but also share with them the art of various types of printmaking.
