Born in Shanghai China in 1941, Mr. Chen is a self-taught artist. His works are influenced by all art forms and styles, from classic to modern, yet distinctively his own.
For more than four decades, he created numerous paintings with various subject matters and unique styles that are collected by a great many.
Contrary to his imaginary nostalgic figurative work, his rich textured landscape paintings are simply inspired by the beautiful scenery that surrounds him.
Now a citizen, Mr. Chen immigrated to the U.S. in 1982 and made his home here in Oregon.
