Today we’re featuring plein air artist Huihan Liu, who is represented by Total Arts Gallery, with a selection of his oil paintings.
“Many of Liu’s paintings are based on his visits to China and Tibet, where painting on location is difficult, if not impossible,” Johnnie Liliedahl once said. “He relies on his drawings and photographs to compose paintings back in his studio in the U.S. that convey the sense of the country and its people in a culture that is rapidly being replaced by modern conveniences and dress.”
About Huihan Liu: A Master signature member of the Oil Painters of America and an artist member of the California Art Club, Huihan Liu was trained in the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art in China with a BA in 1972, and an MFA from the Academy of Art College of San Francisco in 1989. With more than twenty years of his professional career as an illustrator, teacher, and painter, he won the Best of Show award in the Oil Painters of America Regional Exhibition in 1996.
