Professor Liao Shiou-Ping
President, TAFA

In 2000, a number of senior art professors whose works collectively represented the diverse aspects of Taiwanese visual art, came together to form the “Taiwan Academy of Fine Art” (TAFA). Most of the academicians studied art in Taiwan, and then studied or travelled abroad, learning to mix various styles of art. They came back Taiwan to continue their creative careers and pass on their insights to those studying art at university. TAFA is dedicated to promoting various Taiwanese art forms including ink-wash paintings, calligraphy, oil paintings, printmaking, and graphic design. These arts express Taiwan in all its complexity and multiple dimensions, an amalgamation of Chinese, Austronesian, Western and Japanese cultures. Over the past four years, TAFA has held exhibitions in Beijing, Guangzhou, Tokyo and Taipei. These act to promote international cultural communication, share ideas on artistic creation, and enhance Taiwan’s ‘soft power’.
