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 ones
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.
