Victor Wang is a professor of Department of Fine Arts at Fontbonne University St. Louis, Missouri. Victor grew up in China and we can constantly see the Chinese heritage in his paintings especially his psianintgs are incorporation of collages of figures from China’s Tang Dynasty. The texture and earthiness on the canvas’s surface are inspired by the texture of the soil on the farm where he worked in China.
In a statement, victor said: “My path through life has been adventurous, exciting, and dream-like. My experience of settling into America in search of better opportunities has been both challenging and inspiring. I use the human face as a vehicle to paint human experiences – worry and wonder, sadness and pleasure – which reflect the emotional stage directly tied to my immigration experiences.
China’s Cultural Revolution played an important part in my life. During that time, sunflowers were used as political allegories to depict how citizens of China should follow Mao who represented the sun, since sunflowers follow the sun’s movements. People eventually inferred the deception that this symbol masked.

Although I often gain great pleasure from the process of painting, it is most important to unfold expressively those feelings within myself. Victor Wang
