September Artist: Zhi Chen Yao

Zhi Chen Yao studies traditional Chinese painting at an early age and graduated from the Chinese Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, but moved away from traditional water and ink brush painting technique to the use of heavy ink, bright colors and bold strokes. His landscape paintings represent the vivid natural habitants of the Guan Dong Mountains where he grew up. Mr. Yao currently lives and teaches art in Pasadena.
