Shubert B. Wang is in the front rank of portrait artists from China. As a young child, he was already creating likenesses of people starting with a clay bust of his granduncle, one of the leaders of China in the 1940’s. By age 19, he had already won Best in Portraits Award in a region of 4 million people. He studied with leading artists, researched masters by extensive travel and participated in national exhibitions. The America’s leading Portrait artist Everett Raymond Kinstler wrote: “ You have painted very good likenesses and created an interesting group portrait…. I think you made me too good looking, but I appreciate it!”
Later, he served as the president of the Society of Fine Arts of Beijing University and editor of the Palace Museum. Wang earned a Master of Fine Arts at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
His illustrations have been featured in many publications and on CNN. Calendars of his works have been published in more than thirty countries since 1994. His paintings hang in both public and private collections, including those of former Vice President Al Gore and the former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger, who praised his work as "remarkable".
With more than 300 commissioned portraits to his credit, Wang defines the people he portrays by capturing a transient moment and making it extraordinary.
He is a member of American Society of Portraits Artists and gives workshops on both sides of the Pacific.
