Rahic Talif was born into the Amis Makota’ay village of Hualien in 1962. He is a professional artist who works in the fields of wood sculpture, installation art, performance art, architecture, furniture, reworking tribal culture, indigenous society and culture etc. As a result of the tribal age hierarchy he has served in the position of mama-no-kapah (father of youth), in which capacity he has been responsible for guiding young people, organizing and managing the entire tribe. From his collection of tribal myths, oral histories and visits to old tribal sites, Rahic has sought to relearn tribal wisdom and helped tribal members participate in art exhibitions at home and abroad, as well create public art works.

For more than two decades, Rahic has reflected on and explored his own ideas, as a result of which he developed a very distinctive creative energy. This has involved using driftwood imbued with life and memories as his main medium and creating pieces that depart from the generally received understanding of aboriginal art. Many of Rahic’s works reference aspects of ocean culture and traditional tribal spirit. He has also proved particularly adept at installation art that makes use of honed sculpted lines and precise language to convey environmental dialectical thinking on the issue of globalization, as he discusses the collapse of communal structure and major social change, encouraging viewers to reflect on such issues through his own actions and art. In 2000, Rahic received a grant from the Asian Cultural Council to attend art activities in the US. In 2014, he was designated an ocean culture artist by the National Museum of Marine science and Technology. His main works include “Modern Meeting Room"1993, “Ending and Beginning"1999, “Return-to-Zero"2000, “The Dance of Standing" 2005, “Incomplete" 2007, “Action Project for Typhoon"2008-2013, “The Space of Fifty Steps"2013- , and he has written “Turbid.”2006, “Journey in the space of 50 steps.”2019.

During his artistic career Rahic has moved from a focus on the possibilities inherent in social criticism, ideas, reflection and re-presentation of cultural interpretation, to an exploration of the essential purity of art.
