b. 1986, Taipei, Taiwan; currently living and working in San Francisco, CA

Hsin-Yao paints oil in a Romantic, expressive manner that honors the Western tradition

while signaling an edgy, contemporary complexity. He has a curiosity and energy that

propel him toward experimentation and innovation; accordingly, he works in a range of

genres: from lush evocations of cityscapes to expressive portraits, and lustrous interiors

and exteriors in which multiple figures enact a story, and finally to his recent new

exploration in bright colors of flower paintings. 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.

Hsin-Yao has recognized by the Art Renewal Center as an ARC Living Master in 2014.

He received the Signature Status recognition by the Portrait Society of America in 2018. He

has won many national and international awards including the First Place award at

Southwest Art Magazine Artist Excellence competition in 2016., He received both

Exceptional Merit Award and Certificate of Excellence in International Portrait

Competition from Portrait Society of America, in 2012 and 2010. He was honored to

receive the Honorable Mention Award and finalist awards in ARC Salon over the years. His

work is on the 2016 November cover of the Southwest Art magazine and the 2012 December

of the Artist’s magazine. He has exhibited his artworks in a huge number of group shows

across the United States, Europe, and Taiwan including solo shows, two-man shows, and

many group shows.
