Liu Shih-Tung has long been concerned with local culture. The "collection" and "reproduction" of ready-mades is his signature style. His diverse and experimental creations have received attention from the art circle both in Taiwan and abroad. His work is in collection of Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, White Rabbit Collection, Deutsche Bank Art, OCI Museum of Art, and so forth. In addition, Liu is frequently awarded and invited as an artist-in-residence. For instance, he received New York Art Creativity Award from Asian Cultural Council Taipei Branch and was in the residence program at Young-Un Museum of Contemporary Art in Korea; at 18th Street Art Center presenting solo exhibition “Bright Eye” in LA, USA. He was selected by Asian Cultural Council to complete a two-month residency program at Morishita Studio in Tokyo, Japan.

Liu Shih-Tung, born in Miaoli, Taiwan, 1970, received M.F.A. from Taipei National University of the Arts. In the 1990s, he was active in a wide range of exhibitions in various forms and themes with his highly experimental and ambitious works. His creative style is diverse, and his technique is free from the constraints, ranging from large-scale installations to the works composed of ready-mades. His painterly works reflect a sophisticated mindset, with a strong visual effect and a sense of modernity, which is also connected to the traditions of art.
