A 75-year-old national treasure artist from Taiwan, A Bao began his career in comics and traditional Chinese painting, with "Reappearance of Dunhuang" as his representative work. At the age of 35, he moved to France, where he experienced the cultural and intellectual clash between East and West, which fostered his bold and whimsical unique style. Although A Bao may appear to be reticent, he is full of imagination and passion, which he expresses through his artwork. His works span ink painting, oil painting, mixed media, and comics, showcasing a diverse and profound imagery.

Recognized by the French government as one of the top 100 Chinese painters, A Bao returned to Taiwan at the age of 54. For the past seven years, he has suffered from illness and weakness in his right hand, but he has practiced using both hands simultaneously and never considered giving up his art. Collector Chen Songlin aptly describes A Bao: "A Bao's paintings are filled with metaphors and symbols. His distinctive painting style and vivid colors break through the chains of reality with confident and graceful strokes, deeply satisfying the dramatic allegory and imagery to interpret the inner pursuit of beauty and design." Christie's and Sotheby's auctions have frequently reported success with his works, and he is well-known in the art world. During his 19 years in France, he often wandered leisurely through major European art museums, museums, and unique flea markets, and spent a long time at Chinese historical sites, which laid a solid foundation for the tension and impressive depth in his later works.

The organizers have specially invited A Bao, an important Taiwanese artist, to exhibit his works, offering us a new perspective from tradition to the future.
