Taiwan girl's anti-Pelosi art gets huge support, encouraging her to create awareness about cross-Strait peace, Zhang Yi reports.

An anti-war painting by Chen Li-chun, a young artist from Taiwan, has received widespread support from people on both sides of the Strait, inspiring her to bravely advocate cross-Strait peace and reunification.

Chen, 27, began painting at a very young age and often uses her brush to convey her thoughts in the hope of bringing positive change to society.

The tense atmosphere in the Taiwan Strait triggered by then-US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan last year spurred Chen to respond.

Hundreds of millions of Chinese people were outraged as Pelosi, traveling in a military aircraft, arrived in Taipei on the evening of Aug 2 despite strong opposition from the Chinese mainland.

The island's ruling Democratic Progressive Party made full use of the US politician's two-day high-profile trip, arranging a meeting between her and island leader Tsai Ing-wen and a visit to the island's "legislative" authority.
