Sun Liang is one of the most important Avant-garde Chinese artists in the ’85 Art Movement, remains active in the Contemporary scene today with his unique personal style and surreal expressions. Sun was hailed as China’s most original artist. Since the early 1990s, he has consciously been trying to cleanse himself of external influences, in order to probe into an inner world, of mysterious and symbolic expression. Sun studied traditional Chinese painting during his early years and considers calligraphy to be his ultimate teacher. He has since transferred his mastery of lines into oil painting, and continues to add color in the style of Chinese painting. Never relying on sketches, Sun Liang improvises and faces the blank canvas directly, allowing his mind to run wild.

Artistic creation does not happen overnight, even for the most gifted artists it has always been a long process of search and refinement. The Chinese Contemporary Art market’s sudden surge in the last ten years has raised many artists to the state of superstardom; a phenomenon unprecedented in China’s history.

Investor Warren Buffett once said “you only find out who is swimming naked when the tide goes out.” That is to say, only when the art market stabilizes will artists’ talent and worth be clearly revealed. Only those who can withstand the passage of time, as well as the dictates of social pressures and market demand, and find their own place among different currents and trends, will have their names secured in art history. They have come a long way for their standing today, and at the same time, possess full potential for a bolder tomorrow. They are essential to the art world of China and Taiwan, as they are in the prime of vitality.
