My name is Liang Ping. I live in Chengdu which is the cultural and art center of western China. All of my life I have loved the arts. When I was very young I was always drawing and enjoying the beautiful things in nature and all around me. It was natural for me to begin painting, as it allowed me to express myself and my feelings with paint and canvas. My preferred style of painting is one that includes much color and the interpretation of what we see. Not perfectly realistic, but with a touch of abstract feeling. I feel it allows me to show my feelings much more effectively. The colors flowing from one to the other. With soft tones but also hard contrasts too. I have a bachelor's degree in art from the Sichuan Fine Art University here in Chengdu. And have also studied extensively under the masterful eyes of some of the best known Chinese artists in the area and China. I continue to pursue the styles and techniques of these Chinese masters, along with my own styles, always feeling that we can never learn enough about the things we love to do.
