“Hsin-Yao’s technique in oil is brilliant and sure; he paints in a romantic, expressive manner that honors the Western tradition while signaling an edgy, contemporary complexity,” states the artist’s bio. “Hsin-Yao has a curiosity and energy that propel him toward experimentation and innovation; accordingly, he works in a range of genres: from lush evocations of San Francisco and other cities to expressive portraits and finally to lustrous interiors and exteriors in which multiple figures enact a story. While his technical mastery is superb, it is never arid or facile. Hsin-Yao’s prose testifies to the fact that he is ambitious in the best sense; he is eager to push his art beyond what’s immediate and popular toward the timeless and real. His dedication and interest in the arts is apparent from over ten years of hard work and academic studies.”
