Qiang Huang

Qiang Huang (pronounced Chong Wong) was born and raised in Beijing, China and now lives in Austin, Texas. Qiang became interested in art when he was very young, and was strongly influenced by his uncle, Hong-En Huang, a professional painter and art educator.

Qiang did not have an opportunity to study art in any
professional art institutions. He studied science and technology instead. He moved to America in 1985, obtained a Ph.D. in physics in 1993, and embarked on a career in optical engineering. However, he did remain active in local art communities. To further develop his artistic skills, he attended many classes and workshops.

He has been a guest artist with the Putney Painters, and painted together multiple times with the modern master of representational art Richard Schmid and his wife, Nancy Guzik. Qiang’s paintings show remarkable accuracy and expressive brush strokes.

Qiang is also one of the self-representing daily painters. He advertises his updated work on his blog, and markets his paintings with online auctions.

Thousands of artists follow his painting blogs and communicate with Qiang actively. He has been teaching workshops on still life painting and on-line art business since 2008. Utilizing his training in the technical fields, Qiang’s teaching is well organized, informative, and easy to follow.
