Z.S. Liang, born in China in 1953 and raised in a family of artists, published his first painting at age 6 in a children’s magazine. His art education spanned two continents, beginning at the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing and continuing to the Massachusetts College of Art and Boston University.
His award-winning paintings hang in both corporate and private collections around the world and several of his murals are permanently on display in New York City. His works are in corporate and private collections throughout the United States and many other countries, including Sheraton Corporation, Marriott Corporation, Weseda University Tokyo and the West Point Museum.
Among the many awards Liang has received are the Best of Show and People’s Choice at the American Society of Portrait Artists, the Arthur Ross Award for Painting at the Classical America New York, and the Lila Acheson Wallace Award for Painting at the Society of American Illustrators. Liang’s paintings have been featured in the Artist’s Magazine and the International Artists.
The book is lovely and is in excellent condition. It arrived quickly. I could not be happier.
