Artist Biography:
While growing up, Chao Chung-Hsiang was taught the basics of traditional Chinese painting. He was later exposed to western art styles while attending The China Academy of Fine Art in China’s Zhejlang province, spending four years studying painting. He combined the fundamentals of ancient Chinese ink painting with an exploratory use of perspective, color, and abstraction—gained through his Western studies at the Academy and an immersive stay in New York later in life. While in school he also studied Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism, and he soon founded his own philosophies on life. Combining these many philosophies and art styles, he created a unique style that fuses ancient subject matter and traditional ink techniques with splashes of abstraction and surrealism. Through his travels across Europe, Asia, and the U.S.A. Chao spent his time as an art teacher while continuing to earn artistic awards and participate in exhibitions around the world.
