Cheng Lian, NOAPS Master Artist
Cheng Lian was born in 1955 in Shanghai, China. Part of a close-knit, highly-talented family, he learned art since he was a little boy from his father, a famous artist and professor. He graduated from China Academy of Fine Art (a famous art school in China known as Zhejiang Academy of Fine Art), and he was an honored student in the art school.
As an artist Cheng has traveled to many places in China, Asia, United States, North America, Europe and South America; he uses his artist eyes observing things that he has seen like people and scenery, and he created eye catching, breath taking portraits, landscapes, and still lives with his unique style.
