   Song was born in 1955 in Wuhan, China and came to Canada in 1988. He has an oriental approach and his own unique style in oil painting. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree of art from Zhejiang Art Academy, China in 1982. Then he worked as an art lecturer in a university and was a professional artist in Hubei Art Academy, China.

   Some of his oil paintings were chosen by the Chinese government for art exhibitions in the USA, Japan, Kuwait and Hong Kong. Five of his paintings have been collected by the Art Museum of China. Besides participating in Chinese National Art Exhibitions, he has received numerous awards in China and abroad.

   He paints most of his paintings outdoors in the wilderness while living and traveling in North America and Europe. He is influenced by the beautiful land and friendly people. His oil paintings won the “City of Toronto Archives Purchase Award” for the 1995 Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. Through his paintings he wishes to express his love to Canada, and the USA and all of their people.

   Our patrons are genuinely intrigued and admiring of the way Song applies thick paint to his canvases in order to convey a strong impression. Song sincerely hopes that you will enjoy this painting and that it will strengthen your relationship with nature.
