He was born in Taichung, Taiwan in 1902. After graduation from Taihoku Normal School (now National Taipei University of Education) in 1922, Liao went to Japan to continue his studies at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts. He graduated in 1927 and returned to Taiwan. While in Japan, Liao was strongly influenced by contemporary developments in Western art.

Liao was a co-founder of both the Red Island Painting Society and the Tai-Yang Art Society. He was also an art professor at the Department of Fine Arts of National Taiwan Normal University and Chinese Culture University. In 1957, he encouraged his students to form the Fifth Moon Group in Taiwan. In 1962, he toured Europe and the United States where he developed a distinguished art style with pink color dominant in it. Liao received the Zhongshan Literary and Art Creation Award, and the Golden Belt Award for Chinese Painting.

He passed away in Taipei in 1976. In 1997, the Liao family donated several Liao’s paintings to the Taipei Fine Arts Museum and set up the Liao Chi-Chun Memorial Fund for the funding and sponsorship of the arts and the artists with exceptional skills of oil painting.
