  • Biography

    Lisa Wang
    Melbourne based artist and art teacher. Born in Dalian, China 1977, Lisa’s passion and aptitude for
    art was evident from primary school. In 1996, as one of the top two art students from Liaoning
    province, she was selected to study at the Dong Hua University in Shanghai, where she completed
    a 4 years bachelor degree with the major in Fashion Design and won several prizes in Hong
    Kong、Taiwan and mainland of China.
    In 2002, Lisa emigrated to New Zealand. During her time there she developed further as an artist,
    and became a respected art teacher in Dunedin. She exhibited widely and received a number of
    prestigious awards for her work. In early 2007, Lisa moved to Australia, and started working as a
    full-time artist. In 2008 she completed a series of paintings featuring Victorian sheepdog trials,
    which were very well received by the local art community. The following year she was
    commissioned by the Geelong Football Club to complete a series of major oil paintings to
    commemorate the 150th anniversary of the club. The paintings captured key players、significant
    moments and passionate supporters of the club. The exhibition was on display at the Geelong
    Regional Art Gallery and was extremely well received by the public. Those paintings are now part
    of the club's permanent collection held at the Cardinia Park Club Rooms.
    Lisa paints in both oils and watercolour. She is a member of the VAS and the WSV, and the Vice
    President of the Watercolour Society of Victoria. Lisa has held 6 solo exhibitions and many group
    exhibitions. In recent years she has travelled worldwide on painting trips with internationally
    renown master artists. Lisa enjoys working with an extensive variety of subjects, but portraits and
    wildlife are her favourite. Her confident brush work, use of colour and ability to capture light making
    her paintings unique and highly sought after by art lovers and collectors world wide.
