LIU DE-LANG


Born in 1958 in Hsinchu, Taiwan, Liu De-Lang graduated from Taiwan Provincial Hsinchu Teachers College (today’s National Tsing Hua University) with a degree in Fine Arts. His painting style evolved from classicism. In his creation, Liu merges his sentiments, thoughts and national identity, and naturally expresses his innovative artistic style and ideas through the Taiwanese sceneries and views. The artist is good at rationally analyzing connections between stones, mountains, paths, birds, and waves in nature. He applies realistic painting technique to express atmosphere that comes deep from his heart and which feels very much like the one in a science fiction book or like a fast-changing mood so common in modern life.

Poet Hsi Mu-Ren described Liu De-Lang’s works in these words: “When standing in front of Liu De-Lang’s artwork, I realize how much temptation the painter has to resist and how much of painstaking effort he has to put to paint this piece of work. High mountains are his home. He is able to grasp all the contradictions and oppositions happening on the island. Perseverance and sharpness of that rock, softness, and charm of that cloud and that mist in the mountain, plants growing in the wind, a sunny day with a gentle breeze, tall mountains of this island, this is what the artist paints. At the same time, he also paints wild and unruly, but lingering life!”
