David Wang is a native of Beijing, China. He gained his education
from the Beijing Education College of China in 1984, where he
learned various techniques in drawing, watercolor, oil painting,
sculpture, graphic design, and Chinese watercolor. After receiving
his Bachelor of Arts Degree, he became a fine arts teacher.
During his eight years of teaching, he has taught hundreds of
quality students, some becoming professional artists and cinematographers.
Wang has also accomplished several major art and design projects,
such as designing and creating an exhibit of the Terra-Cotta
army warriors in the Forbidden City and interior designs for
shopping plazas in Beijing.
In 1988, David came to the U.S as a visitor scholar and studied
at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. After
his studies in 1992, he continued his profession as a full-time
artist. For twelve years, he had a successful career creating
visual art for the Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida Studio.
He worked as a senior background artist doing work from concept
development to production final work. His work has achieved
him credits on: "Pocahontas," "Mulan," "Tarzan,"
"Lilo & Stitch," "Brother Bear," and
"The Princess and the Frog." He has also been credited
for his work in, "Curious George."
Wang's love for art began at a very young age. The art of
masters such as Rembrandt, John S. Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla,
Andrew Wyeth, Frederic Remington, and Frank Tenney Johnson have
profoundly influenced his art. He works mainly with oils in
a realistic style which he finds to be the best way to express
his love of nature and his own spiritual world. Wang's paintings
have been shown in regional and national exhibitions, including
"Arts for the Parks" national competition, where two
of his landscape paintings placed in the top 100 in 2002 and
one in 2003. He was a portrait competition finalist in Artists
Magazine in 1999, and his work was shown in Western Art Collector
Magazine in 2009.

Florida, and he exhibits his work at The Plainsmen Gallery in
