Biography

Keming Chen was born in China, but raised in Taiwan. Chen got Master’s degree in the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1980. For about 35 years, Chen was an engineer related to image process in color television. He was fortunate enough to be able to marry his love of art with science by studying and working as a career. He enjoys art all the time and reads art books in his free time to know more about the theory and practice of color, value, and composition.

 

Chen is mostly self-taught after learning some basic skills in continuing education classes. Chen selected watercolor because of the transparency and flexibility. He keeps on painting by using only transparent watercolors. He paints six to nine hours a day in studio to produce his intricately detailed works of watercolor art when he is not out to take photos for painting reference.

 

Chen enjoys travel and taking photos. Mr. Chen paints in a number of art categories that include cityscapes, landscapes, animals, people, and flowers. He draws inspiration for his artwork from detailed records of his travels with thousands of photographs from many countries in North America and Asia.

 

Chen is a Signature Member of National Watercolor Society, a Signature/Life Member of Missouri Watercolor Society, a Signature Member of San Diego Watercolor Society, a Juried Member of Watercolor West, Life Member of  Transparent Watercolor Society, and is active in a number of other watercolor societies.
