Shaih Lifa lived in Paris in 1964, then moved to New York in 1968 to study painting. He was one of the few Taiwanese artists to have experienced the May 1968 student uprising in Europe and the Anti-Vietnam War movement in the US. The War and Peace series he created in 1969 is a series of works that reflects the atmosphere of the student uprising, a rare example during the White Terror period in Taiwan.
