Much of Taiwan’s traditional artforms are influenced by the styles of mainland China and Japan. This portrait draws from the timeless ink-wash, or literati, paintings that have been deep rooted in asian history for centuries. Surrounding Tsai Ing-Wen’s portrait are morning glories, indigenous flowers and a symbol for a “new renaissance.”
