ABOUT THE ARTIST
Adrian Wong Shue was born in December 1952 in Jamaica, West Indies of Cantonese Jaamican parents.
At the age of seven he began experimenting with colors from flower petals and executed his first deliberate painting.The painting was of the Giant Green Dog, a legendary dog from the hills of St. Andrew. From that point, painting became an obsession. At the age of ninfourteen, Wong Shue began the study of charcoal drawing with private instruction from Alfred Chin of Canton China. At age sixteen he was the personal student of Alexander Cooper of Kingston College.
In less than three decades, he experienced the social and political changes colonialism, independence and socialism. Isolation as a child and teen-ager produced a sensitivity to life expressed in his paintings. His early pen and ink drawings were realistic images of daily life and communicate the full scope of human emotion. He was always encouraged to experiment towards self discovery and freedom both in art and life.
He has always been an artist and never questioned art being his life passion. Additional to art, he holds a B.A. in psychology. For Wong Shue, the life of the artist is a two fold issue. He believes that “the artist creates the art, and the art creates the artist. This philosophy has allowed Wong Shue to approach the creation of is artwork with complete freedom from conventional restraints which often restrict the artist. The rest is a style of painting combining several mediums at oncet to achieve the look that is both timeless and contemporary.
