Biography

Chin-Cheng Hung was born in Keelung, Taiwan, in 1966.
He has devoted his attention to the study of Chinese art since he was 13. After his studies of art at the national military institution, Fu Hsing Kang College, and after he was commissioned an officer, he served in the Republic of China Army, Taiwan for 10 years.
In 1997, he came to the United States to pursue his MFA degree in painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design after a long career as a serviceman. Here he also established his teaching career in the Foundation Studies since 1999.

Chin-Cheng has received numerous awards from different juried competitions and has had several individual and group shows in Taiwan and the U.S. His works hang in many private and corporate collections.
As a traditional Chinese calligrapher and painter, he is attracted by cultural tensions, which led him to create his figures, portraits, and installations. Although he covets and yearns for the tradition of his cultural background, he also urgently attempts to create his non-traditional forms. Through his pastel paintings, he wants to bring a different way of representing portraiture to viewers and makes this art form more contemporary and universal.
