Wen Ze Chen
Wen Ze Chen, raised in Chang Le, Fujian, has been painting since he was 8. After high school he became a farmer for 5 years. During that time he sketched numerous portraits and sketches. In 1984, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree fom Su Zhou, China University and College of Art. He is multifaceted: a talented architect, contemporary sculptor, illustrator of story books, gouache painter, Chinese painter, oil painter and writer. Wen Ze settled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia where he leads a quiet life. His very impasto style of oil painting by pallet knife has boldly broken through and altered Western art. His paintings are now in collections from coast to coast and China.
