Jason S.T. Kuo graduated from the Fine Arts Department of the National Academy of Arts (now National Taiwan University of Arts). He was inspired by Li, Zhong-Sheng (李仲生), the father of modern art in Taiwan, and was also deeply influenced by the post-war art trends in Europe and America. However, his inborn talent for art made him proficient in poetry, photography, both Eastern and Western styles, and even community art and design. He is an extremely rare all-round artist in Taiwan.
