Jason Juan

Wei-Che, Jason, Juan was born in Taichung, Taiwan in 1977. He likes to observe the beauty of nature and do drawings since he was a child. He always wanted to get chances to enter an art school but he studied four-year bachelor degree in Mathematic instead. After finished the study in 2001, with the deeply embedded dream of his life, he decided to pursue and fulfill his desire in art by carrying on a different learning path in the states.

In 2003, he took his first official drawing class in the Art Institute of Seattle. After studying for two years, he learned gesture drawings and found human figures are one of the most beautiful things in the world. During that period, he merged Chinese calligraphy into figure drawing successfully.

In 2005, he decided to take a further step by doing oil paintings through self-learning. He sharpens his touch by painting live models as often as he could and believes painting is one of the most ideal ways to capture the most impressive moment of one’s life. The impression can be a reflection of a life-long story or just an image arisen from a glimpse.

Turning human gestures into powerful and attractive paintings is also one of his interested exercises. The strokes are usually loose and simple but they easily bring people into their imagination. It is obviously that in many paintings, he merges this idea into traditional oil painting.

It is his believe that in a wonderful painting, each stroke tells its own story for being there.
