Artist Jie Gao
In the world of art, after mastering the skills accumulated by the predecessors, if I can innovate based on this basis, even a small step is also very remarkable. This is also my goal, to innovate something new in term of the form and content of painting. at the same time, sharing my understanding and knowledge of painting, it is also very meaningful if it can inspire and help other people who are learning painting. Jie Gao JIE GAO comes from Beijing, China. As a child, he drew many drawing copying them from my comic books, and then his parents realized that their child has talent. Jies parents sent him to art school to learn drawing and painting. Before he got MFA at the Academy of Art, he received a Bachelors degree of Fashion Design from the Beijing Institute of Clothing Technology. After graduation, Jie worked as a video game creator and worked for two video game companies, NETEASE and UBISOFT. During that time, Digital painting was a big part of his life. In 2014, he decided to move his attention back to traditional art because he thought that oil painting would strengthen his digital painting skills. In his opinion, those two complement each other in many ways. He soon realized that traditional painting is what his passion is. He would like to see the world using both Chinese and western perspectives. Seeing what is different between the United States and China and broadening his horizons of art and life are his goals. He believes if he has richer life experiences, his artworks in turn, will be more meaningful.
