Yen-Ching Chang
Taiwan

Yen-Ching Chang (Hope Chang) was born in Taiwan in 1980. She received her BFA in Design from the Chinese Culture University in 2001. Because of her love for painting, she started learning the foundation of drawing and painting and was instructed by her mentor Yimaukun in Taiwan from 2007 to 2009. Currently, she is pursuing a MFA degree in Figurative Painting at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.

Yen-Ching Chang has 5 years of art teaching experience as both a private tutor at her own atelier and a public school teacher after she graduated from college. She spends the majority of her time painting and drawing. Her paintings are the reflections and celebrations of life and she enjoys the challenge and freedom of painting from life. The artist seeks the art spirit with her paintings and wants to express the feelings and emotions she experienced from daily life by using representational paintings. She sees visual storytelling as one of the bridges of communication between her and the viewers. Her emphasis is on how to tell stories by using the relationship between people and their environments while capturing the vitality of her subject.

Artists from the late 19th century inspire Yen-Ching greatly. Her favorite artists are Ilya Repin (1844-1930), Thomas Eakins (1844-1916), Jules Bastien-Lepage (1848-1884), Giacomo Favertto (1849-1887), Antonio Mancini (1852-1930), John Singer Sargent (1856-1952), Isaac Levitan (1860-1900), Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923), Valentin Serov (1865-1911) and Nicolai Fechin (1881-1955.)
