About Artist Shee
Artist Shee is an international artist specialized in oil painting and sculpture. His work of art is created in three distinctive cultural geographic locations of Europe, America and Asia: Paris, Chicago and Taipei. His talent creation shines in all forms and styles of art. His emotions resonate with many art enthusiasts all over the world as his faithful and patronage followers. That is truly a driving force behind his passion in art.
Dr. Gloria Groom, Curator of the Art Institute of Chicago for 19th Century European Painting & Sculpture, once said "his art is about communicating the joy he has found in painting with the colors that convey his dreams to others. His colors and forms have been reinvigorated by his rich personal life and most of all by his deep appreciation of the human body and by his spiritual center."
He is credited exclusively with more than fifty solo exhibitions in various countries and has met thousands and thousands of art-loving followers around the world. He is tirelessly devoted to his work in order to fulfill his dream and satisfy those art enthusiasts. The repercussion and echoes from them have always further strengthened his determination to create more works of art. In art making Shee is always highly motivated and enthusiastically moving forward to meet the challenge of higher expectation from both himself and his viewers.
At his frequent exhibitions Shee in particular welcomes children to visit on sites for a congenial face to face interaction and positive conversations through art as the medium. Children seem quite comfortable in interpreting the meaning of those art pieces as presented. Shee believe strongly it is more important for artists to create art for youngsters to understand than for collectors to own. There shall be no ownership but sharing knowledge and exchanging wisdom in art.
