2018 Featured Artist



Chun Wang was born in Nanjing, China, and completed his formal studies in China.  He emigrated to the United States in 1992 where he continued to study painting and received a Master of Fine Art at the University of Missouri-Columbia.  Later, Chun pursued a career in painting and illustration full-time.  He has participated in many shows including Oil Painters of America’s annual exhibition.

“Painting is my passion and is the way I express my understanding of life.  I love to paint from real life in oil.  There is, thus, a connection between the nature I see, and the natural that I represent in my painting.  Underlying that connection are ultimately, my feelings and my ideas, all of which lie in my heart”, says Chun.
