Liu Kang: Essays on Art and Culture is a testament to the inexorable passion of an artist who knew no boundaries. This collection of 80 essays, which Liu Kang wrote in Chinese over 44 years, offers an insight into the artist's myriad interests: interior design, music, literature, dance, photography, medical science, and the visual arts. Throughout the essays, Liu Kang's contributions as a first generation Nanyang artist and art educator come to the fore through his thoughts and ideas about art societies, exhibitions, artists, the development of art education, and the growth of art in Singapore and the region. This volume also contains snapshots of the artist's life - from old photographs of Liu Kang travelling or painting, to that of the people he wrote about in his essays.
