Born in 1977 in Calcutta, India
Born in Calcutta, India, Liao graduated from University of California (Mechanical Drafting) in 2001. One of the chief exponents of « bad painting » in China, he currently lives and works in Changsha, Hunan province in China. Liao first caught the art world’s attention in 2008-9 with his inaugural solo exhibition in Shanghai, misleadingly entitled « Quietly Appeared Commercial Salon ie. Useless King on the Shore of the Fools, Wu Shanzhuan, Wang Xingwei and Liao Guohe ». Since then, he has continued to dazzle the audience with his unique, deliberately crude painting style.
