Liu set new trends in modern Chinese ink painting by assimilating Western art theories and Chinese ink painting with inventive techniques. Through the distinctive use of rubbed inks, sprayed inks and torn fibres, he creates fascinating surrealistic sceneries that capture the spontaneity of nature. This innovative approach in ink art allows the artist to rethink the essence of Chinese ink painting and boosts the exploration of different effects in the art of ink painting.
